What do you enjoy most about teaching?
Having kids say, "You make learning fun!"
What teacher influenced you the most?
This may sound cliche`, but my mother. She was one of my education professors for a couple of my classes in college. She was the real deal- her class really prepared me for the real classroom with real kids and real parents. She was passionate about making sure she really knew what she was telling us and she seemed so connected to the classroom. She made me and I know plenty of others really want to do well because you knew how much this meant to her.
