Why Teaching is Actually Awesome!

Top Ten Reasons Why Teaching is Actually Awesome:

10.  Free Milk!  
Yep, that's right.  
I get to bring home those leftover milk cartons.  
I can't remember the last time I bought milk at the store.  Hehe!

9. You get to turn anything into a song!  
From lining up...to remember your even and odd numbers!  Who doesn't love silly songs?!

8. You get home in time to watch Oprah! 
 I mean really...what other normal job gets this?  
What will I do when her final season is over?!

7. School Supplies!  
I get so giddy over them! 

6. Teacher Discounts!  Love it!  
My favorite is Barnes & Noble.

5. Kids ask the funniest things!  
Do I have a brain?  Yes, sweety, you do.  
(true question...although he said, "I gotta brain?")

4. Hugs!  
There at least one child at anytime during the day that wants to give you a hug. :)

3. The power of the "Teacher look"  
Gets them every time!

2.  The "ah-ha" moment.  
When a kid finally realizes how to do something...it's just priceless!

1. June, July, and August!  
Still, the best reason teaching is fun...SuMmEr BrEaK!!
