This is the key to Project Based Learning "DO SOMETHING." As teachers and adults, we all have our expertise, passions for learning and ideas that motivate us to be successful. When you share this enthusiasm with your students, they too will be engaged in your subject area.
Doing shows your students that you care about the subject, you like to work in your subject area and that everyone learns and needs to practice and evolve their craft.
Doing illustrates and perpetuates empathy. The students see you care about what you are teaching and that you care about them because you created an exemplar. Good Luck and MAKE!
