i have been thinking a lot lately that maybe my teaching days are coming to an end. my creativity has seemed to have gone kaput, all i do is test my kids to death, and the only perks were that i got done at 3:30 every day and had the summer off. however, that changed yesterday. i did a totally awesome, cool hands-on activity with my class yesterday. seeing their faces light up brought my passion back. i realized maybe i am taking my job for granted, and i am treating it as a "job" and not my passion. i needed that lesson.... in more than one way!
