Reflective Teaching 30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 4

What do I love most about teaching?

Igniting a passion to learn is the best part of the job.

It doesn't happen as often as I would like, but it is rewarding to see learners smile and get excited about new ideas or acquired skills.  These days I mostly work with teachers, but I try to get in the classroom as much as possible.  I work hard to address the needs of all learners in my classes and workshops. It feels good when a session ends and a teacher tells me thank you usually followed up with, "I don't know how you handle all of our questions". The truth is that when I can help teachers or students navigate new learning I feel great. Let me just take this opportunity to say thank you to all of the wonderful people I get to learn with everyday.
