166th Carnival of Education arrives THIS Wednesday 4/2! Inspiration Wanted!

The 166th Carnival of Education will be held here THIS Wednesday, April 2, 2008. Submissions are already pouring in, and I certainly have my work cut out for me. You can submit here at Blog Carnival before 6:00 pm CST on Tuesday, April 1st.

I've already received submissions on a wide range of topics, and I will cover many of them, but I'm going to put out a request for something I would like to see more of: inspirational stories from teachers. This is the time of year when new and veteran teachers alike need all the inspiration they can get. What I'm really asking is: why do you teach? What makes you get up and continue doing it each school day? Sometimes I have to remind myself that the name (and purpose) of I Want to Teach Forever comes from my answer to this question.

Read the 165th Carnival of Education at Bellringers and the 164th COE at So You Want to Teach? to read some truly fascinating entries from across the spectrum.

Thanks, and see you Wednesday!
