Quick! What’s the best thing about being a teacher? If you are like the majority of people out there, you probably answered “summer holidays!” And this is a great perk of being a teacher, without a doubt, but it is a superficial advantage compared to the much greater, deeper satisfaction that comes from being a teacher.
I have created a list, a little bit tongue-in-cheek, of the greatest things about being a teacher. The list is delivered Letterman-style, with the tenth reason being listed first, and saving the best for last. This is my list. Your list may be different but it’s good to think about the good things about being a teacher when you need encouragement. If you are thinking about becoming a teacher, this article will give you an idea of some of the benefits you can expect to enjoy.
Okay, here we go. Countdown’s on! . . .
