What's your favorite thing about teaching?

"My favorite thing about teaching is building relationships. I work with my students to connect with them on a personal level. I talk to my students to find shared interests and family backgrounds, whether through the number of siblings, places we’ve lived or animals we have. I make a conscious decision to take a few minutes to have conversations with my students to hear what is happening in their lives. By making what seems like small connections with my students, they then trust me and will work for me because we have a relationship fostered in commonality."
