Day 1What are the best aspects of being a teacher?
Some of the best aspects of being a teacher stare back at me every Monday-Friday for 180 days from mid-August to mid-May with holidays off. The students. I know that seems cliche', but it's really true. The students really are some of the best aspects of being a teacher. I teach high school kids, and they are filled with hormones and attitude and angst...and I love it. Every day is a new day with them, and that makes teaching them a challenge. A challenge I really enjoy.
Another of the best aspects of being a teacher are my colleagues down the hallways of my school. The people I work with are some of the most devoted people I know. We work hard to help the students in our charge. These teachers I work with spend hours of precious time giving their all to our community. The parents in our community are sending the best they have to us, and we honor that trust by giving our utmost in all our endeavors.
These are the best aspects of being a teacher--the students we serve and the people we serve with.
