Biggest Reasons to be a Teacher!

Hey!

So, I have successfully completed a whole year of teaching this past May and I can say teaching has it's high moments and it's low moments, but looking back, the good definitely out weighed the bad. So I'm going to list my top biggest reasons to be a teacher and the biggest advantages of being a teacher in this post. So, if you are a teacher, a student, or thinking of being a teacher, this post is for you. If you are none of those, this post is still for you because we've all had teachers, right?

So starting at number 5...
5. One reason to be a teacher is the benefits. 

Teachers have access to some pretty solid benefits. At least in my experience there is a wide variety and there are pretty good, comparable to some other professions. Additionally, depending on the state and school district, you might have a build in retirement that you can set up and have once you retire. 

4. You get plenty of vacation time off. 

Obviously one huge advantage and reason to be a teacher is the holidays off. Generally when students have holidays and days off, teachers do to. Plus the whole summer off...yes please!


3. If you have a passion for a particular subject, you can specialize and teach others about that subject. 

I teach Spanish, and since I was in middle school and first took an introductory language class, I knew that I wanted to continue with language. I wanted to study French at first, but ended up taking Spanish instead because my sister was taking Spanish. (I did end up taking French in high school, along with continuing Spanish.) I then majored in Spanish in college and the rest was history. Now I teach something I love to my students. Win-win!

2. The opportunity to have fun. 

Teachers can have fun at their job with their students. I know this won't be every teacher, but making learning fun for students is something every teacher can do. Teaching itself is fun!

1. Making a positive impact on students and inspiring the next generation. 

This is the biggest take-away for me. I want to inspire students. I want to get student enthusiastic about learning Spanish. Most teachers I've meet share that same sentiment. They want to best for students and want to have a positive impact on students. 

Alright, that's all for know. Are there any other benefits to being a teacher? Comment below.

Thanks!

Teaching During A World-Wide Pandemic

Hello! So today I just wanted to come on here and write about how teaching is going so far, as I've been back to work for a few weeks now and teaching digitally, as well as in-person. Firstly, let me give some background. At my particular school and in my particular county we were expected to be all digital this year, but that quickly changed when it was announced that students could have the option to come back into the school. Of course, this arose to many different feels, opinions, fears, and worries from teachers and parents alike. In the end, at my school, our students have the option to learn digitally or to come in-person and we have about a 50/50 split as of right now.  My position is also uniquely different at the elementary level since I teach Spanish and it's a connection class. So, I teach every student in the school. I a group of classes grades K-5 for 45 minutes for a week, and them they rotate and I see the next group. As you can imagine, that's even scarier

Book! - Let's talk about books and reading 2021

 Hey everyone! It's been awhile since my last blog post.... But here I am again!  So today I'm going to be listing off some good and not so good books I've been reading so far into 2021. If you're interested, just keep on reading  Some books I've read so far this year worth missing: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire    *** - 3 stars out of 5 The most recent book I have finished, this book explores what happens to those students who find doorways to other worlds, and what really happens when they come back to the "real" world. A very interesting concept, I enjoyed most of the characters and the writing, but felt the story to be a bit incomplete, but still think it's worth checking out, which is why it gets a 3 out of 5 rating.  The Maze Runner series - The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, and The Death Cure by James Dashner **** 4 stars out of 5 I'm glad I read this series this year. I finished all three books in February and I really enjoyed t
