9. I know this is old--sorry. Been busy.

Teaching is the best job in the world! We get to be a part of magic every day, the magic of a student figuring something out for the first time, the magic of relationships, the magic of kids turning into adults and into their very own people. There is no job better, no job that could possibly be as amazing, interesting, frustration, or magical. I've worked retail, I've worked in offices, and there's nothing like teaching.

I've been lucky in that I was able to sub for as long as I did. I've started my master's in ESL teaching, so I'll have more education options after that's done.

We teachers may be treated like crap, but when I'm in my own room, magic happens.
