The reason you become a teacher is to see that one moment where you see the improvement that a student has made.
You just have that moment, when you see it in the student’s eyes, that they’ve got it. That’s where my passion comes from.
It's OK to make mistakes, because that's how you learn. If you're not making mistakes, you're not learning anything.
People often say to me, ‘when are you happiest?’ I say, ‘when I’m teaching in the classroom.’
