I came to teaching later in life, but I love it. Since teaching composition is my favorite area,Visual Thesaurus is a nice tool for my students. An interactive white board in the classroom has made V.T. even more fun.

Favorite Word:

discernment
Dealing with high school students for a living, I remind myself constantly to exercise all the branch meanings of this word. Discernment requires a balanced mental attitude of appetite,awareness, and self-control. I pursue this for myself as much as I look for signs of it in my undiscerning pupils.
