I had a realization last Wednesday. It was the last day of term and I was sitting at my desk looking around my room and reflecting all that has happening in the last term and beyond to get to this point. My conclusion, I really love my job.
Teaching is very much like a rollercoaster - the year, the term, even the day can have its' own ups and downs. I have worked with some tremendous colleagues, been stretched and had some very memorable moments. It has been hard - no doubt about it - but I feel (and hopefully others can see ) I am a better teacher for it.
