I enjoy teaching, and that should show when I am in front of a class. Having a passionate approach to the class can be contagious. Aside from teaching students textbook facts and the methods of their trade, my job is to encourage their sparks of excitement for their work. Learning can be done under no better condition than when the student looks forward to learning. Showing passion and knowledge for the subject at hand with a professional, yet friendly demeanor will show the students that they have a teacher who wants to be there.
