Default Re: What age group do you prefer?

Like most of you my vote went to the kids (elementary level) - their energy, openness and just plain cuteness make them a pleasure to teach. But there's something positive to be gained from teaching all the different age groups.

Each age group brings a different challenge and a different teaching experience. The skills and understanding of teaching I have learned from one group have enabled me to become a better teacher of another group. To be a fully professional, well-rounded teacher we have to learn and the best way to do that is to embrace a diverse range of teaching situations.
