I love My Job! I Really Do....

Papers that I need to grade SOON!

Yesterday, my mom asked me "How was your work day?" and I said "Awesome." My mom went on to say that she had never heard a teacher say that before, and we had a whole conversation about why I love teaching......

I am constantly telling my seniors to try and find out what they really are interested in and turn that into their career choice, because you might as well enjoy your career.

I really love to read, and I read all of the time and not always for pleasure. I read a whole lot for my job. 

Right now, I have about one hundred essays to read, I need to start reading The Kite Runner for my senior English class, I am currently reading for a professional development group that I am apart of, I am currently reading for a cultural competency training that my entire school is participating in, and I am currently reading Cutting for Stone for pleasure

Another teacher stated: "I do not know how you read all of those paper."

I do it, because I love it. Crazy right?

But, I really do love it.

Reading is food for my mind.

Reading my students' essays is an assessment of how I am doing as a teacher and how they are doing as students. Also, if I do my job correctly, every essay should be different and generate new ideas and new things for me to think about. So, how could I possible not enjoy reading all of those papers?

Also, I need to read to find new books to introduce into my curriculum, to keep abreast of what is going on in education, to feed my soul.........

With all of the other things that I have going on, I haven't had the opportunity to read All of those essays. So, I will come in on Saturday, after my morning run, in order to get caught up and breathe again. (You know I got to get my run in first!)

People, I hope that you are doing things that you really enjoy or "change the way that you look at things, and what you look at will change."

Enjoy this Wednesday!
