What is the greatest misconception about teachers?
I think that students don't realize that we are indeed human.

Describe your all-time favorite lesson/unit activity.
I love the Penny Project, where students collect a penny for each year of their life and then describe an event in their life to match that year. They then attach all the pennies to an object which defines who they are. I have done this project for almost 20 years.
