Being a teacher has many benefits and rewards - helping students reach the "A-HA" moment, summer break and holiday vacations, school lunch, etc. But to me, one thing is more rewarding than anything else.
To me, nothing is more rewarding than knowing that I made a positive impact on a student and that he/she wants to be a math teacher as well. I'm proud of these two gentlemen on a number of levels. Best of luck to both of you!
