WHY DO YOU ENJOY TEACHING STUDENTS IN HILLYER?

I have gotten more satisfaction in the classroom from students who have struggled and worked to learn than from those who are not challenged by the content. I’ve noticed that the hard-working Hillyer students who don’t “get” the content the first time, seem to make connections and have insights that others may never see even after a lifetime of scholarship. Hillyer students constantly inspire me.
