Must Love Teaching

My wish was simple: to wake up every morning happy to go to work. I recently realized that my wish had been granted the moment I taught my first Spanish class.  The past ten years have been the most crazy, exciting, scary, challenging, happy, and rewarding so far…because that’s what teaching is like.  One goes from being a teacher, a nurse, a psychologist, a mentor, a friend, a custodian, a comedian, and a coach (just to mention a few roles) within a class period, five to six times a day, five days a week. But at the end of the day, you recall that one moment when one or more students made you smile, and it makes you want to do it all over again the next day. Teaching is definetely not for everyone, and to teach you must love it!
