Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"Your love and enthusiasm for sharing is a great foundation to begin teaching. Those qualities will shine through whatever inexperience you may feel. Secondarily, patience, adaptability, organization and the recognition that people learn in many different ways will be other essential qualities to giving your students a great experience."
