i'm grateful for my students and the opportunity to teach/mentor.
i really love teaching and being a teacher. i'm not sure if i am good at it. i hope i am. for their sake. but i love it. i love listening to them discover new things, make new connections, dream up new ideas. i love supporting someone as they encounter a problem, something they feel they can't solve. i love seeing when something clicks. i love seeing someone who is super talented and may not even know it yet. i love aiding. i love learning.
i love it. even after its hard and my students are tired or don't understand what i am saying and i get scared that right then, they are realizing that i am a hack. i love how it changes and isn't easy and how no students are the same.
