This caught me off guard.
Normally people ask "What do you love about your job?" Which allows for a list of things I love. And I do have a list.
But asking what my favorite thing is about my job made me feel like I needed to pick one thing. My very favorite thing.
So after the lady asked me I felt like I sat there like a dork silently thinking about my one favorite thing. I felt awkward. She probably thought nothing of it. Ha!
I finally said "Those 'ah ha' moments." Because really this does encompass a lot of my favorites.
When a student and I find a book they end up loving.
When I teach students how to find books in the library and they get it.
When students help me shelf books and they do it right.
When I start a club like my Code Club and students excel & thrive in it.
When a student who hates reading learns to love read with my help.
The list is long my friends so I'll stop here.
It's such a simple question "What's your favorite thing about your job?" But it's a question that's stuck with me and made me think frequently about it. And made me blog about it. Ha!
What's your favorite thing about your job?
