Reading several of yesterday’s SOL posts gave me the idea for today’s post. I have to admit that it’s getting harder and harder to come up with a post each night! So, today’s list is of the things I like best about teaching middle school language arts:
1. The kids make me laugh 2. I learn something new every day. 3. They keep my young. 4. It allows me to make a difference, even if it’s just to comfort hurt feelings. 5. I get to do what I am passionate about, every day. 6. I get to share parts of my life. 7. I get to talk about great books, every day. 8. Being a classroom teacher allows me to grow and change and evolve, and then start all over again if I need to.
That’s all I can come up with for now. Maybe I’ll be more imspired tomorrow. I’m still feeling a little hung-over from the migraine that’s lasted most of the day.
