Teach or Don't Teach?

If you ask me if I enjoy teaching, or if I'll stick with it for a while, the answer you'll get depends on the day (or sometimes the hour) you ask me.  It's that time of year when I'm tired and worn out, and I don't like my job some days.

I feel less competent as an educator.  My patience with kids is wearing thin.  I don't feel like putting in the extra work it takes to make my day successful.

I find myself asking "Do I really want to do this?" or, "Can I really do this?"

But, there are those moments and those interactions that make me remember why I ever became a teacher, anyway, and why I'm still doing it four years later.  They come.  Not often enough, recently.

How long until Christmas Break?
