IVery often as public educators when we talk about our jobs, it's not in the fondest of terms. One would think we're not happy with what we do, but I know for the majority of us, we really do love our jobs. Are we all thankful for our jobs? I'm going to step out on the ledge and say yes, because in light of all the people we interract with at work and in life, our jobs ground us in ways many things in life cannot. I am thankful for my job as a school psychologist because:
1. It pays my bills
2. It's incredibly rewarding
3. It's one I specifically chose to do
4. It's appreciated
5. It's needed
I list those in no particular order simply because each point I made is more or less relevant each day.
Today as I prepare for the nationwide day of thanksgiving, I would be remiss not to note that I am truly grateful for what I do!
Happy thanksgiving my school psych peeps!
