50 Reasons Why I Enjoy Being a Teacher

By Shari Nielsen

A career working with students can often be exhausting, overwhelming, and frustrating at times. There are days that I come home from the classroom and I don’t know if I have enough energy or desire to return the following day.  There are times when I finish an online tutoring session and am not sure if I want to start the next one. However, for as frustrating as these times may get, there are a million and one other reasons why I love teaching.  I just need to keep a list of these reasons available and visible so I can review them during the trying times.

I came across another blogger who had the same idea.  He was rather ambitious and recorded 50 reasons why he loves being a teacher.  Given more time and a desire to end on a number other than 50, I’m sure he could of added more to his list.   Check it out here and feel free to create your own list so you have something to look at when you feel like you want to switch careers.
