Grade School Teacher
The best thing for me is when the children are so enthusiastic about what they are learning that they tell their parents about it. Another great thing about teaching is that you can share things you love with a group of students and really immerse them in the subject. Seeing the kids progress is a wonderful feeling. Nothing beats the confidence and enthusiasm they show when they suddenly understand a topic they have been struggling with. It just makes the long hours of lesson planning, checking, and grading worthwhile.
There are so many things I love about my job and my workplace- from the relationships built with both children and adults, to the endless variety and challenges of the job itself.
