30 Days – What do you love most?

Day 4:  Respond: What do you love the most about teaching?

So my 30 days are already non-continuous, but I’ll keep working to try and blog each day.

This is a tough question to answer.  I love the dynamic work environment provided by teaching.  I love that each day is different, and I love that I get to meet a brand new set of people every year.  I like that each crop of students changes the way that I look at my content area.  I like how no two sections of the same class are alike.  I like that I can generally change my approach if I don’t like the outcome of my early attempts.

I was a person who was often very bored in my pre-teaching jobs.  (I often tell my students stories of when I had to wear the Turtle Suit at the water park…shudder!)  I feel as though I get to operate my class with a sense of autonomy, and I feel that I really do get to make my own decisions about my classroom. (Within reason, of course!)

Even when things are hectic, I still think I have WAY more good days than bad, and that’s definitely a reason to love my job.
