What do you enjoy about teaching?
I most enjoy watching children happily engaged in work and play. This engagement requires the development of concentration, coordination, independence, and a sense of order. My job in this development is to create a beautiful classroom, with inviting work materials, an organized curriculum, and clear expectations. This requires all of us to be patient and persistent, to observe, to repeat, and never to give up. I love the work and the challenge, and I love to see the children happy in the glow of their accomplishments.
A little about me.
