Favorite Word:

competent
I like the percussive sound of the word. It makes me think of a person who refuses to give up on learning a new skill until s/he has it down pat. It's like chipping away at it until it's yours.

Least Favorite Word:

stupid
It is a self-defeating word. I refuse to believe that my students fit in this category.
