I truly loved the experience of learning the foundation of what it takes to become an effective ESL teacher. I came in expecting the course to be "easy", but it was challenging. For the money I spent, I am thankful it was challenging because it made me feel as though my money was well spent and, more importantly, my time. If we want to become the best teachers, we have to be great students. In order to go in that direction, we need challenging environments that push us beyond our comfort zones. In life, we are all students and teachers, even if we do not view ourselves as teachers. We teach not only through direct teaching and instruction, but also through modeling. There are always eyes watching us to see what traits can be adopted to include in one's own life. In essence, teachers are always students and students are always teachers.
