I absolutely love being a teacher. There are very few other jobs I would rather do than be a teacher…and most of them include possessing skills or powers that are not natural. Being able to share ideas, passion, enthusiasm, and laughs with students is amazing. However, it is incredibly stressful. There are so many different things that happen each day, and so many of them you cannot control. And you are much more than a teacher: you are a counselor, a jailor, a mentor, and entertainer, and a manager.
Also, on a sad note, I have been told twice now that I am undate-able because I spend too much time working. And that has hurt a lot. I sometimes feel torn between the two. But I realize that I just need a man that is mature and understanding enough that I can have two loves in my life: him and my job. Until then, I guess I gotta keep my head up.
