Looking for a child's rapt attention.

As a teacher, each time I teach a class it is a different experience. Each child and thus, each group has moods, interests and needs that are separate from the class before. In order to be a good teacher I need to vary my teaching methods to those children. As I teach, I watch the group for signs of restlessness, telling me its time to move on to another topic or song. I observe when a child is interested in my story telling and go a bit more in depth than I thought I would. The quiet nuances of a child's rapt attention is what I look for in each class. For me this is what makes teaching interesting. Every class is unique. Every experience with children is facinating!
