My favorite thing about teaching is that no two days are the same. There is always something that a child says or does that makes me laugh or smile.
What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
I have two favorite subjects to teach: math and literacy. I enjoy teaching math because many students can find it intimidating and I like showing them that, if they persevere, they can always find the right answer. I enjoy teaching literacy because there are so many amazing books and subjects that I can introduce to my students.
