1. Every Day is Different
Actually every class is different, every student is different, every parent is different... and so on. I love the fact that the activities are always varied, and thus always fresh.
2. I get to answer questions.
There is a certain amount of pride in answering questions. If students ask questions, I know that they want to know something more.
3. My Students.
I love the energy of young people. I thrive working with students and the fresh ideas they bring. Spending time with young people keeps me young.
4. I get to use new technology daily.
SMARTBoard, Flip Videos, Laptops, Tablet Laptops, Computer Lab, and of course MY CALCULATOR.
5. Problem Solving.
Teaching gives me a chance to problem solve on a daily basis. I find the challenges engaging. They give me a sense of accomplishment. How do students best learn? How can I make the material engaging?
6. My Colleagues
I love working with the people in my department and my school. They are so supportive and downright fun to be with.
Coaching gives me a chance to work with my students in a different way. I love working with a team to try to accomplish something you can't alone.
