I’ve heard so many teachers talk or write about their favorite part of teaching. For many, it is when the light bulb goes off for that one student who you know is struggling to understand a concept. For others, it is having students come back years later thanking them for the extra help.
Those are all great, don’t get me wrong! But the best part of teaching to me is something else. It is simple, really. The kids make me laugh every single day. I am a middle school teacher, so I think we get to be the silliest out of all the teachers, but I’m sure the same is true for many educators.
Being a special education teacher, I get to work with my kids very closely and learn them so well. With this relationship comes a lot of laughs. As long as I am laughing every day, I know I can handle whatever is thrown my way.
