worth it

Student teaching is fantastically exhausting. You teach all day, then stay after to discuss how everything went and where everything is headed (plus prep materials and make displays). When you finally do get out of the building, it's only to go home and spend all night planning the next day. And in this case, it's doing that while adjusting to the ins and outs of a different educational system. In a foreign country.

I need a hug.

But despite feeling a bit like a headless chicken most days (one with its heart on its sleeve, no less), it helps to remember the roomful of reasons that makes it all worth it. That's all it's ever really about, anyway.
