Adult, Education - Free images on PixabayMy Best Day of Teaching happened to be during the 2016-2017 school year. I had a student arrive to my classroom from Mexico. He didn’t have any knowledge of the English language. Thankfully, I had taken 7 years of Spanish throughout Middle and High School. Even though it had been a few years since I had spoken Spanish, I was thankful that I had a base knowledge and it came back fairly quickly. Throughout the year, I saw him grow tremendously.  The best day was when he brought in some money from Mexico. He stood in front of the entire class and spoke IN ENGLISH to our class about money from Mexico. I have never been more proud as a teacher. By the end of second grade, he was reading on a 1st grade reading level.
