I've had a pretty negative outlook towards my job this year, but it's not about the kids. The kids are awesome. And as I was running a couple minutes late this morning, which is rare for me, I could hear a couple of my kids around the corner and down by my room waiting out in the hall. I heard "Mrs. Schaeffer" being said among the mumbling. As I turned the corner, I was taken aback by the huge smiles and "There she is!" and "Hi, Mrs. Schaeffer!" And oh the smiles. They were so big and so genuine. I couldn't help but break out into a huge smile myself. What an awesome way to start the day. If I decide to do something else one day, it's the kids that will bring me back to teaching. And okay, those long summer breaks aren't bad either.
