My greatest gift is my enthusiasm. I get really excited about teaching--I love, love, love what I do and I am absolutely crazy about my students. In college, I majored in journalism because I find everything and everyone interesting. Every day is a new adventure in learning and it's all fun! I try to share my enthusiasm about learning with my students--and sometimes I think it actually works. One of my best and brightest (who will be attending Rice University this fall) told me that I was the best teacher he had ever had. Several have said that they don't really like English, but they like my class because it is fun. I believe that if you are interested in what you do, your can get the students involved as well (at least sometimes).
