Okay it’s not me in the picture but it really reflects how I feel at the end of almost each day..
The other day I was having a chat with a friend of mine and when he asked me how things were, I told him how tired I get at times.
And he said. ‘You get tired? Doing what? Teaching? You call that tiring?‘ And he went on saying his work is way more tiring than mine. Actually he thinks his job is the most tiring one in the whole world. What’s his job? Well, he is a reporter. Anyways.
I am not saying or claiming that being a teacher is the most challenging and tiring job one can do. But I just CAN’T take it when people underestimate the things we- teachers – do..
In addition to everything we do at school, outside the school maybe we do even more!
Don’t you think so ?
I mean even when I’m enjoying a song, a video, a movie, a poem or anything.. After the very first second, I stop watching it for myself and try to find ways how to use it in the classroom.
And I’m sure I’m not the only one doing this..
We leave our schools in the afternoons or in the evenings or whatever.. but we bring our students, our lessons with us to our houses, don’t we?
So.. I am so proud to say…..
I AM SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A TEACHER
Much more than a teacher? Well, the poster below will tell you more about it..

Nice poster isn’t it! It really motivates me when I need it..
I know most of you will agree that we teachers do a great deal of work.. We know it, our students know and feel it..
At the end of the day.. that’s what counts..
And before I go, here is a video I watched today in the morning.. I really liked it.
