Confessions of a {gasp!} Happy Teacher

I fully realize that this blog has a decidedly cranky tone. I can only say in my defense is that it's due to me being decidedly cranky. Yet...I have to confess....

I like teaching. Despite all the crap we have to put up with, I wouldn't want to do any other job. I feel this sense of--dare I say it--cheerfulness even as we approach the return to school tomorrow. This feeling was solidified when I read a post by Pissed Off Teacher that said pretty much what was going on inside of me.

So here's to all of us, who will return to work tomorrow with a smile beneath the grimace. Enjoy!

PS: I promise to return to my old cranky self ASAP.

I think I can give you competition in the cranky department.

Thanks for your mention of my blog.

You're welcome. I've been reading you for some time, tho I only posted once or twice under a different name. I envy your position--being able to walk away whenever you want must be a pretty powerful feeling!

I feel bad that I just found you now. But, I will keep reading.
