You have to LOVE what you do!
It was just a year ago that I retired and said goodbye to my school family and a job I really loved and believed in. I was the Reading Specialist for at-risk readers in 1st and 2nd grade at Pioneer, a wonderful elementary school. The photo is of the EXCEPTIONAL teachers of these first and second grade students. They are an intelligent, educated (Master's Degrees), DEDICATED, hardworking, and LOVING team of teachers. They love what they do! The children come to school each day to risk-free environments, where they can learn and grow from "where they are" at that moment to "where they need to go". I was always so proud to work with them all! I only taught for 15 years before retiring... was a stay-at-home mom for my daughters before that. All I can say is, " Lucky children and lucky parents to have these people as their teachers". I LOVE YOU ALL!
