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!

Million Yen Women - Japanese Drama Review

Hey!

In this post I'm going to be reviewing a Japanese Drama called Million Yen Women, that I watched on Netflix. First a little background. One of my favorite things to do is watch TV. I love finding a good show and binge watching. I started watching Asian dramas my sophomore year of college and since then I've been hooked. I've watched dramas from Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Philippines, and India. Now I don't exclusively like shows from these Asian countries, I still watch American shows as well, but I do find myself binge watching these more often because they are usually one season with anywhere between 10-30 episodes. Short and to the point. Now there are shows that are longer but generally that is the episode range. In addition, I also watch telenovelas occasionally, but let's save that for another post. Through my blog I want to review and recommend some TV shows that I truly enjoyed and I hope you will too!

Anyway lets get on …

Ways Teachers Can Handle Stress!

As a teacher that is in my second (and a half) year of teaching, I can attest to the very true fact that teaching is not only difficult, it is also very stressful. Many may not understand, or may think that teachers just complain, but the truth is that teachers work really hard, long hours, and they often neglect their own health or families to make sure students have everything they need. Now this isn't going to be every teacher but most teachers I've met and worked with so far are very dedicated and work to give their students the best.

So...

That being said, how can teachers relieve some of the stress that comes with the pressure to provide the best for students. Here are some tips that hopefully can help someone, including myself. I need to take my own advice, because this being only my second (and a half) year of teaching, I already feel worn out and I had a health scare not to long ago. Teachers everywhere, please remember to take some time for yourself and relieve some …

A Spanish Teachers Top 10 Kpop groups (Male)

So today I wanted to write about my top 10 favorite KPOP male groups. Quick background, I got into Kpop about 3 1/2 years ago and I got hooked from watching Kdramas, (or Korean Drama shows). So if you're a Kpop fan, a casual listener, or maybe you've never even listened to Kpop, this list is just to introduce my favorites. Maybe you'll be persuaded to give some of these groups a listen. Okay, let's get started.

 Now this list is going to be going from 10 to 1. I love all these groups and think they are all amazing but the number one spot is going to be reserved from my ultimate bias group. I will write a bit about why I put these groups on my list.
10. Pentagon
I don't know why it took me so long to start stanning Pentagon, but they definitely deserve more love and recognition. They have some great songs. 
9. Monsta X Monsta X is a group I just recently started listening to and I have to say they really are an amazing group.
8. Seventeen Seventeen is one of those g…
