5.What is your favorite thing about teaching at AE?

Right now, it's gradually watching our best become our norm. Overall I'd say the belief that my affection matters. You don't want to let the kids down so you strive to do more, to do better. They motivate you. It's weird but the ones that fail make you work even harder than you normally would. I expect them to do well, that's what we've prepared them for, but when they take the wrong paths or make mistakes it requires us to improve. Those are the things that keep us on our toes.
