"There is no way to pick one favorite thing. Teaching is my favorite thing, but teaching is a multitude of things. My favorite thing is the ability to help my scholars self-identify their strengths and work to build their own capacity as learners. The pride instilled within each student is palatable. Every day my scholars come, and we journey and explore together; we generate questions, design plans, and make discoveries together. We work together to plant deep seeds. My favorite thing is to see is when these seeds bear fruit. My favorite thing is my scholars."
