What are your most important teaching goals for the children in your class?

My most important teaching goals are that each child feels that they have a voice and that they are confident in their abilities.

What I like most about being a preschool teaching assistant is when students experience ah-ha moments when they begin making connections in their learning and seeing the progress and growth being made in a child each school year.
