    1. Oh my word, yes! The look on their face is just priceless. A combination of pity and wonder (about your sanity probably). :D The world's best kept secret is that NOBODY has as much fun at work as middle school teachers! Shhhh. Don't tell!

  11. ...if you love seeing that spark when kids grasp an abstract concept for the first time, making connections and generalizations, and yet you also recognize that some of the younger kids in the class are still very, very literal and concrete. And that's okay, because your lessons include activities to nurture that too.

  13. You could be a middle school teacher if...you are quirky and upbeat! Middle school students are one in their own! You need to beat to your own drum and connect with the students and stay on top of the "coolest" trends to be a true middle schooler at heart
