What made me feel most engaged, connected and affirmed as a teacher was when I had two of my quiet students open up and talk. I finally found something that got their interest to share information with the class. Previously, one of the students gave me a hard time by not participating with their group and had no interest at all. It wasn't until a group project was assigned that involved each student to share something unique about themselves. Not only was I shocked, but the entire class was in awe when the student not only shared their story but volunteered to speak more than once. I felt as though my creativity of forming the groups was a success which helped students who normally wouldn't participate. To add, I was so excited to see this particular group of students again. The successful observation of recognizing the quiet students transform not only helped me proceed with the rest of the assignments, it also helped bring the class closer together.
