1. Teachers

I love the month of November! It is the epitome of Fall, which is my very favorite time of year, it’s the month of my first born’s birth, and it is also the month of one of my favorite holidays–Thanksgiving!

Over the last couple years, the 30 Days of Thanks Facebook challenge has really grown, and I think it is definitely one of the best fads to ever grace my newsfeed. I took part last year, and it was a truly wonderful experience. I think it is so important to remind ourselves what is important to us and to remember how blessed we all are. I have so much to be thankful for!

So, I will take the challenge again this year! I am going to TRY to blog everyday and include something for which I am thankful!

Today, I am thankful for my career. I am a teacher, and I am so proud of that! I whole-heartedly believe that teaching is one of the hardest professions there is. People often brush off the importance of a teacher’s job because we “get off at 3:00” and of course “have the summers off”. It is rare that someone gets an inside view of what a teacher really does! Perhaps if our lawmakers would come to spend a day in our classrooms, they may think a little harder about things like VAM scores, LEAP testing, engageNY, SLTs, and many of the other acronyms that have taken over our lives! So, to all of you who devote your lives to our children, thank you! I am thankful for your career choices, as well!
