Curiosity Question of the Week - ISTE Edition: What Do You Love Most About Teaching and Learning?

Last week's question had some great responses! Thank you, everyone! If you didn't have a chance to respond it is ok to do so now!
You’ve won a contest and your complete wardrobe will be provided and updated for the next 10 years. The catch is you are only allowed to choose 2 colors. That's two colors for everything you wear for the next 10 years. Which 2 colors would you choose to wear every day? What does your color choices say about you?

This week's question is dedicated to the incredible educators attending the ISTE Conference next week.
