Theres something rather special about seeing a student overcome a challenge, usually the challenge was approached with “Thats Impossible” or “I’ll never get this right!” but not too long after there is always a smile and a hint of wonder at how they overcame, and with no necessary explanation its the “I did it” moment thats written all over the students face that makes teaching such a great joy.
