Day 4: What do you love most about teaching?
I said kids then, and I'll say kids now. One of the toughest parts of not going back full-time is knowing that I'll have less students. Ideally, it will be easier and I will have less papers to grade and fewer parent teacher conferences to schedule, but students are the best part of this whole thing by far.
Students are why I show up everyday. Students are why I try new things. Students are why I push to be greater.
It's not about me. And it's probably better that way.
