i just love this quote from conan o'brien. seriously, i love it.
it is something i believe in wholeheartedly. hard work and being a good person. my parents did not raise my brother and i to follow a specific religion but they did always teach us to do the right thing. they taught us the value of a dollar and that if we wanted something, we had to work for it! i can remember washing the dishes after dinner time 5 nights a week and getting $2.50 for my piggy bank. those were the days.
but i still take any job i have very seriously and am always trying to do the best i can and figure out ways to improve even past that. my current job is no different. being a teacher is hard work and the beginning of this year has been tough. but hearing my students say, "teacher, this is my favorite class" lets me know that i must be doing something right. i am excited to see what other amazing things this year will bring. :)
