    Why I Teach

    How we communicate with the world is important. The most rewarding parts of teaching, for me, are when students understand that what they say and write matters and that they can shape their world through effective communication. Students become excited when they realize that the material learned in English class extends beyond their school and that participating in meaningful communication, be it reading a newspaper, listening to a podcast or blogging about an experience, can be powerful.
