     My greatest reward as an instructor is when a former student returns to tell me how what they learned in my class has helped them in their career and/or everyday life.
     I try to adjust my assignments to the student’s level. I try to give assignments that challenge but do not overwhelm or discourage my students. I give a variety of hands-on activities to show the course material in different ways. Some students need to see a video, others need hands-on. I try to cater to each student when possible.
     I love to see when a student goes from my helping them, to the joy they feel at accomplishing a task on their own, and then showing a classmate how to accomplish that task.
