“There’s no better feeling than seeing the lightbulb go on. To know that there’s a new idea in a child’s head, and that you’re the one that put it there. But if any teacher is being honest, they will tell you that there is a small percentage of students– that no matter how many times you go over something, they just won’t get it. And it burns you out. If you’re emotionally invested– and if you aren’t emotionally invested, you’re not doing it right– but if you are, it can burn you out.”
