What's your favorite thing about teaching?

"My favorite thing about teaching special education is seeing the pride in my students faces when they accomplish something that they did not think was possible. Teaching students to have confidence in their ability to learn and succeed is important when molding students into lifelong learners. I encourage my students to find alternatives to “I can’t” statements and teach them that it is okay to ask for help. I set high expectations for my students, and they rise to the occasion every single time. Watching my students interact around our school with their new-found confidence is incredibly rewarding."
