Answer: I wanted to be a teacher like my morn. In high school, I had several teachers that never gave up on me and I decided that I wanted to be like them for a child. Q: What do you love most about teaching? A:The thing I love most about teaching is seeing a child's face when they accomplish a difficult task, discover something new, or he/she is telling me a great story. Q: What are the best and worst things about teaching children in the grade you teach? A: q-he best thing about teaching 3rd grade is getting to see the students start to grow up and mature into a young adults, q-he hardest thing about 3rd grade is school starts to get tough and I see a lot of students struggling with the responsibil- ity and pacing of 3rd grade. Q: What's the funniest thing that's ever happened in your class- room? A: The funniest thing that has happened in my classroom this year is watching my kids blow up their yoga balls and then try learning how to sit on them. We had quite a few fall. It was really funny watching them then have a "Super Bounce Party." Q: How can parents help you teach their children? A: Parents can help me teach their children by reminding them to practice taking responsibility for their actions and always put their best foot for- ward no matter what the situation is. Q: When you're not teaching, what do you like to do? A: I like to read and catch up on my favorite T.V. shows. Q: What is one thing you wish the world knew about teaching? A: I wish the world would remember that teachers are people too, As teachers, we make a million decisions a day and we always try to do the best for each student in our classrooms. Q: What do you do on your summer vacation? A: On summer vacation, I like to relax at the pool and catch up with friends! Q: If you could change one thing about teaching today, what would it be? A: IfI could change one thing about teaching, I would change how people see teachers, teaching profession deserves to be respected and not looked down on. As teachers we are just trying to help our students be all they can be in and out of the class- room. Q: If you could assign one book for everyone to read, what would it be and why? A: If I had to assign one book for everyone to read it would be *Charlotte's Web.* It is one of my favorite books and I love the story. It is a story about friendship and loyalty. I think we can all learn a lesson from a talking pig and a letter writing spider. Keith P.
