The Dream Job

Okay, okay, an elementary school teacher isn’t exactly my dream job. But in the eyes of some, it might just be.

Take for instance the students who beg me to allow them to erase the dryboard after class. I can do that dozens of times per class.

Or the students who can barely wait the week it takes them to win candy, and salivate throughout class at the thought of it. I have hundreds of pieces of candy available for consumption at any point in time.

Or the employee who can’t stand the sight of his/her boss. I see mine maybe five minutes every other month.

Anyway, the job’s not that bad, and some of the students can even make it pretty good. Here’s some pictures of the students I currently teach.
