What has been one of your favorite teaching memories?

“My favorite part of teaching is working with beginners, especially kids. My favorite moments in working with beginners are the huge, beaming smiles across their faces when they've just accomplished something or done something well. It's the combination of joy and growth visible in those moments that make teaching rewarding.”
