I love learning. I love reading. I love writing to express ideas. I love the smell of libraries. I love watching students learn. I love seeing a student's writing improve because she keeps working at those weekly assignments, asking questions, and reading my comments. I love it when a student's face lights up because he's just got some connection between his life and the lives of people two thousand years before. I love watching students get enthusiastic about a speaker they've just heard.
I love a liberal arts education and so I read this piece at Front Porch Republic and cheered!
