5 Reasons Why I Love My Job

Here are just a few reasons why I love my job (with a little help from my camera phone):

1. Cute Kids
Ok, sometimes they piss me off, but mostly they are just completely adorable and it’s hard to stay mad at them long, even if it’s the 12th class and they still can’t remember “How are you? I’m ok.”
2. Free Lunch
There’s no such thing as a free lunch, my ass! Sure, it may come in a bucket, and be made of random bits of animals or rather old vegetables… but hell, it’s free! Saving me – at least – $1-2 a day.
3. Eye Exercises: Mao Style
Everyday at 9:30 a.m. the roughly 2,000 students at my school can be found rubbing acupuncture points around their eyes so as to relieve pressure and end the need for glasses. Many, even most, of my students have glasses.
4. Eye Exercises: My Style
Everyday while the Happy Birthday tune signals the start of class, my students illustrate that they’ve practiced the things I taught them the class before.
5. Creative Writing
I tell them and tell them that they need more spacing between their words … and this is why.
