What do I love about teaching?
1) I truly love helping students to learn! This may seem like a very obvious statement from a teacher, but I'm thinking particularly about those students who may have a little more difficulty understanding a concept and need some extra time to work with me. When we spend that time and that student really "gets" what we've been working on, I can see it in his or her eyes, and I know that they are starting to really understand. Those moments make me so grateful that I have had unlimited opportunities to help children learn over the past 23 years.
2) I love to observe students' "written" thinking. Seeing the way they express their thinking in writing helps me to understand their thought processes. It also helps my brain generate ideas!
3) I love to listen to students' conversations when they are trying to solve problems. It's so interesting to hear the different ways they express their thinking!
4) I love observing the way students can help one another understand concepts!
