It’s not my first choice to be a teacher but now as I became a mother I realized I have the best job of the world! Why? Let me just sum it up with 3 reasons:
1. One-month and 14 days vacation every year. It could be three months if we haven’t 2-week special English class on October and a month English Summer class on March. Besides this, we got weekends off for household chores and having quality family time. Other professionals find it hard to take off for a family vacation . They need to schedule it with the kids vacation dates. It’s not a problem for me because both I and my hubby are teachers. Our schedules is the same with our kid so planning and going for a family vacation is a piece of cake.
2. My schedule is perfect when it comes to looking after my kid. My K-2 son goes to the same school with me so I have time to follow-up him every now and then. During their break at 3:30-4:00 PM (he attends tutorial class at 4:00-5:00 PM) which is also my break time, I met with him to eat our snack together. When the bell rings at 4:00 PM I send him to his classroom while I go to our playground for a spelling session with our students from 4:00-4:30 PM. I log-out at 4:30 PM. While waiting for my son, I usually read my favorite books. You see? I’m home when he is so it’s possible to help him with homework or just spend the evening with him.
3. Being a teacher brings me a great deal of satisfaction . Teaching career will not make me rich financially but it makes me feel awesome because I know I’m making a significant difference in the lives of so many youngsters.
