Why do I love teaching? I love teaching because each year I get a front-row seat to students' exponential growth. I believe that the students I teach will be change-makers and earth-shakers. Whether we are learning fractions or discussing the world's pressing issues, I am most hopeful about the future when in front of a classroom.
