Best/Worst Part About Teaching

  • Best Part: Seeing that light of understanding "click on" in a student's eyes after they've puzzled over a problem.
  • Worst Part: Students who waste time in class, who don't realize how fortunate they are to be able to attend school, and who don't take advantage of the opportunity to learn something new each day.
