Brandi Cooke
Professor, Mathematics
Santa Fe College
Statement:  My favorite part of teaching is that moment when you see the light bulb go on for a student. They are following along and listening and writing and suddenly you see them get it. Sometimes those moments are one-on-one in office hours and sometimes those moments are in the classroom. But those moments where you really reach that student and they suddenly make that mental leap are wonderful! Sometimes it's with new material and sometimes it's with material that they've really struggled with for a while, but it's nice to see them make that connection and suddenly it clicks! Those moments make it worthwhile - knowing I've helped that one person right then.
