Moran compares his experience during his first year of teaching with his second. After receiving his M.S.Ed. and completing a very successful first year of teaching, he thought that he had reached an important milestone. However, his confidence was shaken when he began his second year, realizing that the students as individuals and within the group dynamic can vary greatly from class to class. Each group offers new challenges and thus new learning experiences for teachers.
