When you have as much enthusiasm about teaching as Chris Hart does, it's not hard to understand why his students say things like this.
"He is one of the best teachers... Ever had."
And why they really like coming to his classroom here at Tarpey Elementary in Clovis.
"When ever I wake up... He's really funny."
Whether he's making his students laugh, or helping them better understand their lessons, Mr. Hart says he truly loves teaching.
"Its the most challenging... Most rewarding."
Mr. Hart says he was inspired to go into teaching by his own fifth grade teacher.
"I was contemplating... Would be wonderful."
When it comes to his students, Mr. Hart is committed to inspiring them in any way he can.
"Keep working hard... Gonna do great things."
