What is your favorite thing about your career?

Learning is hard, sometimes even painful. I find joy in those moments when a student who has struggled with a concept truly gets it - the "aha" and you can see real growth int that young person. It is also wonderful when a student comes back years later and contacts you, sharing reflections that you had no idea were occurring at the time - that's pretty awesome.
