What is the biggest lesson you've learned from your students?

The biggest lesson I've learned from my students is to begin each day with enthusiasm. My students come in eager to see what the day has to offer. To them, each day is a new adventure, and they are excited to get started on it. They know there will be bumps along the way, but they embrace each day as an opportunity to learn and grow. Their enthusiasm is contagious; you can't help but get caught up in it with them.
