dc.description.abstractNobody ever said teaching was going to be easy. It certainly is anything but easy. Teaching, though, is rewarding, not economically but emotionally. During my internship I had the opportunity to teach on three different levels: junior high, senior high and adult education. In the junior high school, Massey Hill, I substituted for the French teacher. At Westover, the senior high school, I taught French I and II and tutored French III and IV. Substituting for the English as a Second Language (ESL) professor 'was exciting. The ESL class was made up of adults. At each level of education I felt the emotional rewards which come from knowing you have passed on knowledge. I remember one day grading test papers. Kim, a student whose work was generally average, scored a 100% on a test on which the rest of the class had done poorly. I was so excited that she had finally done well that I applauded her in class. I felt a triumph and she did, as well. This type of reward makes teaching worth the time and effort one puts into it.en_US
