No surprise for me here.  Lifelong learning and an ongoing commitment to meaningful professional development are central to what I do and who I am.  

In other words, I am biased. I believe great teachers develop over time.

    I agree fully with you. I can feel it myself what experience can do. I am more open to their issues, understand my students better and have developed ways of making the subject interesting.
