Teachers are among the most inspiring and caring people in our society. They dedicate their lives to the guidance of other people’s children. However, no amount of pedagogical training or subject content knowledge can prepare an educator for the messy reality of life in the classroom. What makes educators truly special is their ability to teach and to learn, to react and to change for the good of their students, to be faced with the same curriculum year after year but yet make it engaging while still finding ways that they themselves can grow as educators. I recently asked teachers to share their greatest “aha” moment from the classroom. Their responses are inspiring, informative and demonstrate exactly why it is that teaching truly is a noble profession.
