"What I love most about primary-age children is their ability to feed off your enthusiasm. I think the best way to describe it is to imagine that I have a big mirror on my chest. Whatever I am feeling or showing interest in reflects back into my students. It's a huge reminder for me each day to model a genuine love for learning new things. The most frustrating thing? Glitter! It gets everywhere. Kids pour it in their hair if I'm not looking. I wish there would be a world shortage of glitter." —
Paul Campbell (AK '16) Teacher
