By Thomas Mann, Take Ten Volunteer
I look forward to Take Ten every week because I enjoy interacting with the students. I enjoy laughing at the jokes, seeing that they understand the ideas that we share with them, and getting to know each of them better. I also find it rewarding when it seems that they genuinely value the ideals of Take Ten. When I get the sense that a student is enjoying the class and likely to apply what he or she is learning to life outside of the classroom, I feel that my time with Take Ten is time well spent. If I can help to make the time in the classroom more enjoyable then the rewards both for the students and for me will be greater.
