Lately, I have been demonstrating creative activities for YouTube videos from The Mailbox. (They haven’t been posted quite yet, but they will be soon!) I found that sharing these fun activities takes me right back to the classroom. I almost feel like there should be a bunch of wiggly students gathered around me. (In reality, the only person in the room is Taylor, our digital media designer, and I’m pretty sure he already knows how to combine and separate sets and recognize the letter L.)
I love my job, and I feel like I contribute to the education of many, many children. But sometimes I do miss seeing those excited faces looking up at me. I think the part of a teacher’s day I miss most is storytime.
I love reading books aloud and using all the different voices. I can do “Yertle the Turtle” like nobody’s business!
If you are currently teaching, what would you miss about your job if you moved to a different profession? If you aren’t teaching, what do you miss?
