12

With the school year underway, it's the perfect time for us to recognize (and remind ourselves) why we absolutely love what we do.


Here are my top 12 reasons I love teaching:


1. To share my passion for reading, writing and learning.

2. My students constantly surprise me.

3. To feel like my work has a purpose (outside of just making money).
