I'm grateful for the the days where everything goes as planned..technology works, discussions are meaningful, and the students grasps the concepts...While this sometimes feels like the exception and not the rule. I appreciate the days that seem to fly by without any problems...

I'm grateful for being continually refreshed by a new group of students each semester, students who continue to teach ME about how they learn and how I can continue to improve my teaching.

I am particularly grateful this semester to have some "live wires" in all three of my classes. These active students make my job so much easier --and more fun for everyone. When I teach two sections of a course, one of the sections is often more enjoyable than the other. I attribute this dichotomy to the presence of students who volunteer answers, questions, comments, etc. that enable that class to move beyond the basics that I initially provide. I believe that student participation is an absolutely critical classroom component.

I am grateful for the chance to continuously learn and study with the students. I am thankful the daily challenge of working to provide opportunities for students to get excited and help them understand the role they play in their own life long learning.
