Student engagement and motivation are an essential part of the classroom experience. A teacher's job is to cater to student needs in the classroom when planning lessons and differentiating instruction. Motivating factors for students differ; however, the question is whether or not a teacher can motivate a student through enthusiasm and a well-designed lesson plan. In this research study, I focused on how my enthusiasm and the use of effectively designed lessons affect student motivation and engagement.
