The thing that gives me the biggest goosebumps as a teacher is when you have a student that finally makes that connection with what you have been teaching.  Every year I read a book at Christmas time to my students.   It is a Junie B. Jones Christmas book.  In the book, Junie B. receives a gift from a Secret Santa.  A "Secret Santa" (me) then gives the students in my class the same gift, a new box of crayons.  Every year I have several students then make a connection between the gift they received and the gift Junie B received.  Their faces and enthusiasm bring tears to my eyes every year.  They love this book so much they start asking to read other Junie B. books.
