clear What Are Some of the Rewards You Will Reap?

Any teacher will tell you that teaching's biggest reward is seeing the excitement of a student who has mastered a subject or skill. Serving as a role model for younger students or becoming a valued friend to older students also generates enormous positive feelings and helps renew volunteers' commitment to teaching.

Another reward is that, as a teacher, you will also learn. Teachers gain experience in understanding group dynamics, conflict management, collaboration, and problem solving -- skills that come in handy later in life.
