I do miss teaching

in the purest sense. By that I mean I miss planning with my terrific team and then teaching the lessons to well behaved students who want to learn.

I wish there was a place to do that. I do not miss dealing with behavior problems, difficult parents, report cards, paperwork, meetings, boring professional development, back to school night, curriculum night.... You get the idea.

So whenever I start to miss the art of teaching I remind myself of all that goes with that pleasure. Then I do not feel that sad anymore.

Plus, I have a great volunteer teaching job. I teach after school Bible lessons in a national program called "Kids Beach Club". Beach is just the theme. So, for two hours every Tuesday afternoon during the school year I get to be a teacher again to third, fourth and fifth graders. I feel very blessed. It really helps to not miss teaching too much.
