Why I remain a teacher! With all of the paperwork, meetings, data, conferencing, paper grading, testing, re-testing, behavior managing, planning and stressing, it can be easy to forget the real reason why I became a teacher... TO TEACH KIDS!
It's all about the inventive, bubbly, imaginative, hilarious, brilliantly observant, curious, brutally honest, encouraging, open-minded, information hungry, sweet, loving, quirky, FANTASTIC KIDS!
These reminders are when I step back and re-ignite the fire (that can sometimes grow dim), and start teaching with a burning passion again! I hope your teaching flame burns bright too, and if not ... remember that YOU make a difference to THE CHILDREN! :D
