The theme for this blog hop is "Lucky to be a Teacher". You know, when you are in the thick of a rough school year, it is hard to think about why we are lucky to be teachers. I often feel like it is one step forward and two steps back. And...it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So, I've been thinking. Why am I lucky to be a teacher? The main reason is the human aspect...the bonds and connections that I have made with both students and fellow teachers. I've reached a point in my career that I am seeing former students as adults and even beginning to see some of those students' own children in my school. That is really something! I also work with a wonderful group of really supportive and fun teachers, and they are a huge part of the reason that I keep coming back each year!
