What makes teaching rewarding to you?
For me, the rewarding aspect of teaching is not the teaching itself but seeing the learning take place with students. The learning process is complicated as many teachers know, and it can sometimes be very frustrating. If you are lucky enough to be truly present and witness the very moment a student 'gets it', it is incredibly rewarding. Unlocking the agency in students is what drives me each day.
