For me, the act of learning brings many rewards; the satisfaction of understanding something new about the world around us, the thrill from knowing how or why and the sense of accomplishment from gaining a new skill. I teach because I want to share this enthusiasm with students, to see them delight in their own achievement and to teach them how to learn independently and become tomorrow's teachers.
