What Do You Love About Your Job in Education?

Kindergarten teacher extraordinaire Mr. Halpern, who blogs at Look at my happy rainbow!, just wrote a great post about why he loves his job. This is a time of year to make sure you have an answer to that question, because it's going to frame your entire year.  It's not just a question for teachers, either; it's for school leaders, district administrators, and everyone else within the ed sphere.

If you're having trouble thinking of anything, you really need to reevaluate why you're working in education in the first place. You don't have to love everything about it--very few do--but there should be something that you absolutely adore.

So what do you love about your job in education?
