One of the most important things I can do to motivate students is to be enthusiastic about what I am teaching. Such a zest for the subject and process of learning can be contagious and draws students into the learning conversation. I want them to realize the connection between the physical body and behavior and be both curious and in awe of human and animal capabilities.
