Classroom Teacher's Job

We know that as teachers, we don't often get the recognition we deserve and there are many days when we are overwhelmed by the amount of students in our class, the varying needs we are faced with and the curriculum expectations that are set out before us.  Many people do not often recongize what we actually do on a daily basis but we don't do it for the recongition.  It is for the students and their potential benefits that we spend extra hours in the school building or in our own homes planning and grading just to get through the next day and although we dont often see the effects immediately, by then end of the school year, we are often amazed by the growth that we see in the students that walked through our doors in September.
It may not always be easy, but it's the classroom teacher's job and it takes a strong person to do it!

  1. This is so true! I think people lose sight of the very basic difficulty of a teacher's job: to keep a group of 20 children safe and engaged in learning day after day. People can be ago quick to judge, but put in the same position, they would be realize what an important and challenging task it is.
