This was such a pleasant listen on my walk today! Among all the great points that Ken made, I particularly enjoyed how he described his own experiences and motivation to become a Spanish teacher, as well as how successful teachers have a sense of community and caring. That is so important to me! Thank you Norah and Ken!
