the enjoyment of work

Portrait of me (the taller one) and a student, by a talented first-grader
Receiving beautiful artwork is just one of the many reasons I love my job.  Being a teacher makes me realize how VERY wonderful it is to really enjoy your profession, especially just the day-to-day experience of working.  I am so happy to see my students everyday, and teach them, and just talk with them.  I'm convinced the most important aspect of any job is by far the enjoyment factor-- not the money factor.  I am also convinced that everyone can find an occupation they enjoy as much as I do mine-- it just might take some time and trial-and-error to find it.
