Education is a journey that lasts lifetime for all of us. Some of us remember specific lessons, projects, or activities from our days in class. They stand out because of the importance the subject matter or perhaps the connection we had with our teachers on that particular day. However over the course of our years in schools we spent thousands of days in school learning. Many days just fade into a blur of the overall classroom experience. As a teacher, you can never anticipate just when a learning moment will be become forever captured in a child’s imagination – a day that will stand out from the rest.
