The suggestion for this YAY! was submitted by Tiffany, a 30 year old teacher in Denver. Here's what she said: Teaching is hard. Wayyyyy hard. I am exhausted, generally, 10 months out of the year, and well-rested for 2. BUT, I am content year-round. Why? Because of kids. They are honest. They are silly. They are a mystery. They bring me joy. They cause me to reflect on my intentions and my actions. They make me laugh daily. They make me cry with their courage and perseverance. They have taught me to listen. REALLY listen. And to laugh, REALLY laugh. That's it for today....YAY! KIDS!
