Teaching: The Good Life

Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 6.15.29 AM

While summoning the energy to head back into the daily grind, I found some interesting facts about being a teacher taken from a Gallup poll surveying 14 different professions:

1. Teachers earned the #2 spot for general wellbeing as a profession.
2. In rating their lives on a scale of 0-10, teachers rate themselves higher than any other profession, except physicians.
3. They earned the #2 spot for those professionals who feel they  learn or do something new every day.
4. Teachers rated highest in saying they’d laughed or smiled the day before.
5. Teachers took the number one place in saying they experienced happiness and enjoyment with their jobs.

With 2 million teachers needed to replace retirees in the next decade, maybe we should spread the good word. What new facts have you learned lately?

    DANA:
    DE CUERDO CON LA ENCUESTA, CREO QUE LA PROFESION DE MAESTR@, SI ES TU VOCACION ES ALGO INCREIBLE.
    AHORA ME PREGUNTO QUE PASARA CUANDO NO TENGA QUE VENIR A MI SALON Y DISFRUTAR EL DIA CON L@S ALUMN@S.

    CREO QUE BUSCARE EN MI RETIRO ALGUNA FORMA DE COMBINAR LOS VIAJES Y ALGUNA FORMA DE SEGUIR ESENANDO.
    CUIDATE Y SALUDOS A LOS TRES MOSQUETEROS
    GILBERTO
