    I'm very grateful I have my job. I love being a teacher here - mostly. ;)

    I have a good class and I like them a lot - mostly. ;)

    The pay me well, relative to other districts around here and certainly compared to what teachers make in most other parts of the country.

    I love that my admin leaves me alone and lets me teach how I want. I would go crazy with a rigid curriculum or, even worse, some kind of scripted program.

    More than anything else, I am grateful for my kids and husband. I know that's not job related, but they are the best things in my life - usually. ;)

    A supportive principal and students who generally like to learn.

    I'm grateful for my team- a huge support. And I'm grateful for my 8th block. They're such an awesome class; I hope my other blocks will catch up!

    I'm grateful for the ability to be incredibly creative with my lessons (since I don't have a curriculum). Yes, it takes a lot more planning time, but it's worth it when my students are having fun and learning at the same time.

    I'm grateful for my students - they work hard and I'm seeing such progress. It's amazing what they can accomplish in the 30 minutes we meet with one another.

    I'm grateful for my AP - she has my back and totally understands where I'm coming from when I'm having issues with my P.

    I'm grateful to work in a private school with a small class, supportive admin and a great kindergarten team!
