Like most of us, I've had more than a handful of days where I thought my job choice was a mistake, and I wondered just what on earth I got myself into. I've had students with behaviors that had me crying in the bathroom on my planning...parents who made me red with rage...piles of grading that made me sick...meetings I thought would never end...deadlines looming much too close...admins who forgot what it's like to be in the classroom...a room full of kids with blank stares... But not once, not even for a moment, has it ever crossed my mind to quit. I love that our jobs are never boring (who has time?), we have such an opportunity to make a difference, kids who love us, and a job that matters and is meaningful...even when my electricity gets shut off because I'm so broke :lol: Who knows what the future holds, I may end up a statistic. But at the end of the day I can't imagine quitting, at least not for now. What about you?
