When the adult can no longer be surprised and enthusiastic
about what children do, then the role of the teacher is over for that
The problem, then, is to become aware of what is
happening right under our eyes.
— Loris Malaguzzi
This thought embodies why I became a teacher, although I didn't see this quote until recently. I have always loved teaching children because I get such a sense of joy that I get see children as they are learning things and that I get to see that look on their face when they figure something out. Thank you to all my students, past and present, for the joy you bring me.
