Why Do I Teach?:
Have you ever seen the "AHA" when a student discovers something for himself? Has a child ever said, "I love you" to you? Has a child ever told you they couldn't do something and then hugged you when they did it anyway? What could be more important than guiding a child to discover the joy of learning, the wonder of the universe, the power within himself, the love of a good story, the magic of numbers? That's why I teach.
