What do you love most about teaching?Living with a person who absolutely hates his job (my poor hubby) makes me even more aware of how much I truly love everything about teaching.
I never ever feel like I am going to "work" and I am actually sad during the summer. I can't really pick one thing that I love most.
I absolutely love my students. Even when I think I have a challenging group or student, I am able to separate the student and the behavior. I also love when I can see the light-bulbs go off for a student that has been struggling. I think that is what really made me realize I wanted to be a teacher in the first place. I can remember that feeling from my own days as a struggling student and there is nothing like it!
I also love the continual learning and growth that comes with this profession. Before I became a teacher I was always reading self improvement books and learning new hobbies. I love that every day is a chance to learn something new and that I will never stop striving for improvement.
