The joys of teaching

I know I talk about my job way too much, but the truth is, I love teaching. I love explaining things to the kids and getting them to behave a certain way. I am starting to wonder if it should be a character trait of teachers to have big egos...

We had a potluck teachers, parents dinner last night. We handed out report cards, visited with parents, ate, and had a little meeting. My school is so screwy. The parents are rich, self-centered and snobby. I was hurt by the fact that most of the meeting was in their German dialect language, and I was left out of most of the conversation, although I was suppose to be so important. I was frustrated by parents attitude to raise the hot lunch prices cause I personally find it already high for a school endeavor ( Remember Beth, this people are not like you....). I found the meeting a real interesting case study.

But then, my little kids hugged me this morning as they arrived to school. Their bright smiles fixed it all. I might just learn German just for them....
