What is your funniest, most embarrassing, or best teaching moment?
My best teaching moment was my 1st year of teaching, when I only had 36 students and it felt like my very own family, which made it very special.
Worst teaching moment.
Not necessarily my worst teaching moment, but when I was calling home to one the students parents, at 8:00, the parents didn’t know where their child/daughter was, then I realized that they had something way more important than the little thing I was going to say to the parent. (More of a heavy moment)

I would say to them that where there’s a will there’s a way. I say this because if you really want something, there’s going to be a way to fulfill that duty.
