In thinking about my teaching activities this past week, of what do I feel most proud? Why?"

As I sit and think back of this past week teaching activities I feel proud about my student totally grasping the hair growth cycle and the terminology of the properties of the hair and scalp. they were able to learn this information from the group activities and games that we played to make it fun and interesting. I test all of the student and every student passed with a's and b's some c's but no failing grades which was awesome! Why? am I so proud because I was able to reach all of my student and they all showed growth in the area of cosmetology as far as gaining the knowledge.

Wow, that is really something to be proud of! I know that felt so good that all of your students passed! What a great accomplishment. I think sometimes I get more nervous to see the grade my student earned on an assessment than the student does. I put my heart and soul into what I teach and try to make it fun and engaging to where they will really grasp the material. Do you mind me asking what review kind of activities/games you used to help them really grasp what you taught them? Great job, I know you will continue to do well especially having them all pass the assessment this early in the semester.
