I really enjoyed reading this book. It's great to hear experiences share by people who later became educators based on the acts and qualities of their former teachers. I was fortunate to share one of my reasons for becoming an educator in this book and still today, being creative is one of the characteristics that an effective teacher displays to help students master skills and continuously want to learn. I tend to stay up late some nights searching for things that will be interesting and exciting for my students. Being creative opens up the minds of youngsters allowing you to fill them up with knowledge.
