Being a teacher is really rewarding, no doubt about that! To see the progress of the students, feel their enthusiasm, know that you are actually making a huge difference to their future… That is really something! That positive energy is what keeps you going day after day without getting tired of your job.
However, it can also be exhausting 🙂 You give so much energy each day, and even though you get some back you are very likely to look forward to some vacation by the end of the semester. Does any of you teachers recognise yourselves in this image maybe? 🙂
