Small children under my tutelage garner furious applause from their invited audience. Not only Moms and siblings, but also Dads, a grandma, an aunt and an uncle are present to witness this birth of something new. My four students have eleven supporters who show their appreciation vociferously after every song, poem or exercise we demonstrate. Only four classes in two weeks, but they accomplished much, shocking even me when I come back from the other room with their perfect execution of an exercise I had already given up on last week. Three, four, five and six, they make me proud.
