For most teachers, this is the reality. What too many people hear as "complaining" from teachers is an effort to open up dialogue with the public about the realities of a very challenging profession populated with good-hearted, passionate human beings who want to make a difference in the world.
I love teaching my children! In my past I thought about becoming a teacher before my children were even born. I took classes and was a teacher assistant for kindergarten and first grade. I loved it and it was so much fun! Their motivation to learn and the smiles are priceless. Kids are so intrigued. As parents & teachers we learn from kids too!
