Reflective Teaching: Day 4 Love most: THE FIRE

Day 4- @TeachThough Reflective Teaching Challenge

Respond: What do you love the most about teaching?

Simply put: The Fire! Taylor Mali says it best: In his poem “I teach for the Fire” 

 

I love seeing students have the fire lit inside them! Seeing students go from not understanding to finally getting get is so powerful. Lighting the fire gives you a sense of accomplishment. Students come back to thank the teachers for lighting the fire! This also means I love teaching because of the students. They make it worth while. They are the reasons I get out of bed. I want to see another students have the fire lit. I want to make sure the fire keeps burning everyday.
