While exploring my favorite website, Pinterest, I came across this teacher poem. It summed up so much about teaching. As teachers are being acknowledged this week for the work we do, I think it's important to note that teaching is something I chose to do. I absolutely love getting up each day to see those sweet, smiley faces. No matter what is going on in my world, they make me feel loved. Teaching is the most rewarding thing I've done in my life, besides being a mother. I wouldn't trade my job for anything in this world. I am truly blessed to have my job and the amazing kiddos and families I work with.
