It also means that it is my responsibility to encourage all types of students and learners to achieve their personal best. A Teachable Moment My favorite classes in high school were always art classes because they were hands-on. I loved reading and writing, but didn't like being told what to read and write. Then, I took an elective for the credit called "Family and Society." This new teacher was vibrant and eccentric. He opened the first class saying, "This is the only time I'm going to stand up here on my soapbox, this is your class and I want to hear what you think." Of the four years of high school that was the only time I ever heard a teacher say, "I want to hear what you think." This moment inspired how I run my classroom as a student-centered experience.
