Teaching this class is the most rewarding part of my week. The students are adults working towards their GED or just towards math literacy. Some are in the class to help their kids in school. The students love the class, and I love teaching it. For me personally, it's rewarding in many ways. It's clear I'm making a difference, not only in the material I teach but in the experience I give the students in the class - I strive to keep the class energetic, lively, and engaging. From the students' feedback (and attendance), I'd say I succeed. My students shake my hand and often tell me "good class teach, thanks".
