Another one was the refreshing experience of reading about films that Maureen included in her book--films which I had seen at festivals or discovered on my own.
But I have to say that the most fulfilling experience that I had while teaching was showing clips from the 1981 Heavy Metal movie (the B-17 sequence in particular) and having a student come up to me after class, telling me how amazed he was at what I had shown him that day, and that he was going to track down and watch Heavy Metal that weekend. There's just something special about inspiring someone to learn about a new facet of animation on their own.
I'd give this experience an 'A'.
