When I was student teaching, one of my cooperating teachers would ask me at
the end of a day, "What was the special moment today?" I think my first
response was "Did I miss it, haha??" But she taught me to look for special
moments each day, such as times the kids gave back to me, or "ah ha" moments when
students got it, or moments I learned from them (rather than the other way
around), etc. Just a different way to look at a day of teaching, but I seem to
have a different attitude when I look for the special moment(s).
