Top 10 Reasons We Are Grateful to Be Educators

As an educator, I’m thankful for:

  1. Students who, without fail, say “good morning” to me every day
  2. The feeling I get when I finally reach the bottom of a stack of student essays
  3. The look on a student’s face when they finally “get it”
  4. Three-day weekends
  5. The deductions from my paycheck which mean I have health insurance
  6. A lesson that doesn’t follow the script because it means my students are thinking
  7. Former students who visit after school just to chat
  8. School leaders who trust teachers and support them
  9. A snow day
  10. Teachers who are genuinely passionate about what they teach
