What do you love most about teaching?

I truly enjoy making teaching FUN to help engage my kiddos, thereby helping them to learn the material.  I rarely had fun teachers back in the 70’s and 80’s, so it became my mission early on to make up dances, rap songs, cheers and the like to help children learn & master material.  I also absolutely LOVE working with 4th graders because they genuinely love and appreciate what I do, they are blatantly honest, and they aren’t too “cool” to let me know they love me! 🙂
