“My favorite part of teaching is seeing students achieve something they once believed they could not. Regardless of the subject matter nothing is more fulfilling than helping students to build the skills required in order to accomplish a difficult task and then witnessing them successfully overcome that challenge. The moment when they finally realize that they can succeed is more precious than gold.”
