I love what I do...

Ya know, celebrities are always saying "I can't believe they pay me so much to do what I love..."

For me, it is more like I can't believe they pay me so little to do what I love!! As a public school teacher/librarian we really don't make enough. I plan on the weekends for my classes during the week. I plan all summer for the upcoming year. The rewards are plentiful though. Some of the time I get to sit in a big comfy chair that used to be my Grandmother's and read to young children. I just started Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo (love her) with three third-grade classes. I just finished a Kevin Henkes unit with 1st and 2nd grade and an Eric Carle unit with my kindergarten classes. Reading, what a great way to get through the day! Lilly would say "Wow".
