  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    That mission statement is pretty similar to my teachable moment. Igniting Passion in the student is when the light bulb goes on and the student has a grasp of what your trying to teach them. You know when the class is engaged when they are asking questions that lead to more question and higher level answering.

  • A Teachable Moment

    The best teachable moment I can think of is when the light bulb goes on for the student. You see the student struggling with a topic or technique. Your helping them the best you can, you explain it 10 different ways and they still can't get it. But on the 11th try, they say "AHAHA". You see there eyes light up and the confidence comeback to the student. That is a really good feeling.
