Why I Became a Teacher

I've been asked several times why I became a teacher. Why didn't I go for the big bucks and go into business? There are many reasons. So many in fact I'm afraid you'd grow bored and move on to something more interesting like stock prices, farm futures and the movie reviews for the new film showing at Cloverdale's Grand Theater.

Something came across my desk that I think highlights one reason I became a teacher and I thought I'd share it with you. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, here are pictures. I think you'll understand as you look at them.

The following are student responses to tests. Enjoy them and then we'll talk.......

Do you understand? I get to work day in and day out with unique individuals. As Mastercard says..... It's priceless.
So cheers to all my witty, sarcastic, brilliant and unforgettable students. I enjoy each day of your company here in The Confederacy of Dunces. Keep me laughing and I'll stay young forever.

  1. Fabulous examples; how smart of you to keep them. I think you've hit on the reason lots of us became teachers--every day is a new possibility.
