Super Teacher

I really love being a teacher! I obviously enjoying working with kids and teaching them something new. It is a completely exhausting job but well worth it. I cherish those teachable moments when I can stop and really reach that child...aka the aha moment. I love when I assign projects that my class seems really excited about. When my kids feel that sense of pride in a job well done and I know I helped give it to them...that's more of what I love. Most days I feel like I am super hero. Here are some of my special talents.

Super Teacher~
can be in multiple places at once.
has eyes in the back her head.
repels the germs of all the sick students in her class
can complete all her paper work, lesson plans, and report cards in the blink of an eye.
can fit everything that has to be done into a 7 hour day.
doesn't have to use the bathroom for hours on end...or at least until her special or lunch.

And those are just a few of her many talents. But seriously another awesome thing about being a teacher is the vacation time and snow days (although remember we actually have to make snow days up).

I aspire to be a super teacher! I do love it, but sometimes I am just sooooo drained. The older ones are a hard group. Our school has over 3,000 kids, too. Yikes. Today, I had a glimpse into small class size and the difference it could really make. Most of our students stayed home. Only 1,000 of the three came in- so, it was a nice day. Yes, there are many wonderful things about being a teacher...and ya can't help appeciate the vacation and snow days. Think about it, we never really stop getting to be students, in a way!
