Why I Love Teaching

#LoveTeaching Week is a week-long celebration that takes place mid-February for educators to exercise the conversation on why they love teaching. This week, educators are encouraged to reflect and analyze their love for teaching and the importance of the profession to them. This year, this conversation is especially important as many educators put their own health on the line to teach in-person classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The educators who are still teaching virtually are also working tirelessly to ensure their students don't miss any instruction. We encourage you to join in on the conversation with AAE and ASTA by joining our #LoveTeaching Slow Chat on Twitter by following @aaeteachers!

As a 27-year veteran educator, I have often been asked “Why do you love teaching?” and my answers have varied over the years, depending on my age, my current circumstance, and the dynamics of the students I was teaching at the time. Certainly, I have been guilty of giving the cliché answers “Oh, I just love working with children” or “Seeing the lightbulb go on for students is the greatest gift” and although true, these answers have never succinctly expressed my authentic feelings about the work I do. Recently, I was reminded of one my favorite words and it seemed to perfectly reflect what I love about teaching.
