SOLSC Day 10 -- 10 Things I Like About Teaching

Slice of Life Story Challenge -- Day 10  #SOL17
10 Things I Like About Teaching

In honor of the 10th day of March and the 10th day of slicing, here are 10 things I like about teaching:
1. Spontaneous hugs from kindergarteners
2. Outdoor recess on sunny days 
3. The exquisite look on a student's face when he finally understands a new concept
4. Curious third graders asking insightful questions
5. Energetic, fun, caring co-workers
6. Uncertain students beginning to enjoy themselves as they learn
7. Kid-drawn pictures given to me as gifts
8. Snow days (although we haven't experienced that pleasure this year)
9. Sweet smiles from students you don't even know as you pass them in the hallway
10. Days that are never, ever, ever boring

  1. What a lovely list! Made me smile today

  2. I know what you mean about those spontaneous hugs. The enthusiasm and surprise makes me smile everytime. Your list tells me just how much your truly love teaching!

  3. What a great idea! You have the best ideas for writing. #6 is my favorite.

  4. Great list. We had so many snow days this year I started dreading them...and we had to add days back.

  5. When I started teaching many years ago we often had spontaneous recess just because it was such a nice day. I miss that- I teach older kids now and it's difficult to get outside as much as I did in elementary school.
