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.
