Most students are happy to see me, and many are open with their affection.

Describe a student outcome or success that you are most proud of.

I love it when a student starts out hating a class, ends with with an A or a B and is proud of himself. I am proud of a student who recently decided to stop bucking the system and is now getting As and Bs and talking about becoming a surgeon.
