What's your favorite thing about teaching?
“I used to look at a dictionary and struggle until I would cry. Boom! It hit me that dictionaries help you figure out hard words,” said a student. An interactive lesson on dictionary skills is what hit me. Teachers have the ability to expand students’ thinking. I get excited when I hear a student say, “This is too hard.” It motivates me to teach in a way that they can understand. I use contagious excitement to peel back the layers of frustration. When learning exceeds student expectations, I fist pump on the inside! This is my favorite part of teaching."
