Living the Dream

Today was an incredible teaching day! My students were wonderful, which is not always the case. I mean, they are in middle school, so their emotions vary from moment to moment. I felt like all of my classes absorbed the lesson and responded well to what was being taught. It is times like today when I am reminded why I love what I do. Even on the hardest days, I wouldn’t trade my job for any other job. It is because teaching in my dream. It is what I was created to do. Whether or not I stay in the classroom or not, I know that my life will be centered around teaching others.

I believe that whatever your passion is, you should find a way to incorporate it into your daily life. It may be writing, reading, talking, or socializing. All of these characteristics can be incorporated into various jobs or hobbies. If you cannot find it with full time employment, then after work or school, try to fit it into your routine. It feels good to be engaging in an activity that you enjoy, and in turn you feel more positive and alive. Don’t let your days become mundane. Fill time with passion and your dreams. Life it too short to spend it doing things you hate.

  1. Very true. As a teacher, I have my days with my students filled with colourful moments, laughter and inspirations. I motivate them as much as they motivate me. I never thought teaching was my dream (originally I was in sales & marketing) but my true calling, even in my dreams, was teaching. Here’s to the passion of career.

  2. Its funny that you write this. I was talking today with my para-pro who is in school to become a SPED teacher. She has been with me for almost three years now and at first thought she wouldn’t want to be a teacher, BUT…the kids have grabbed her heart and now she can’t imagine having any other career.

    I LOVE teaching! It has some very hard days, but the reward of smiling children and hugs from my school babies make all the yuck! so worth it!!!
