I am truly thankful for the opportunity to teach. I remember a few years ago how it was working in the "real world". I looked forward to my two weeks off a year, with a few holidays thrown in the mix. I sometimes hear chatter from fellow teachers who state their displeasure with their job. I have to watch out and not align myself with their way of thinking, or I too could become ungrateful for what I have. The time off makes up for all the stress that goes with the job. I am having a blast!
"The more we have fun, the more we succeed."
I must not forget how it was before; going back to work on December 26th, or not having a full week off at Thanksgiving, or not having a summer break at all... How can I not be thankful for teaching?
