How is the teaching life sublime? Let me enumerate the ways:
The palpable excitement of my colleagues as the new year begins ... it is indeed ELECTRIC...

Getting the "do-over:" the chance to really improve your practice every year -- and seizing the opportunity to do so...with relish...
Meet the teacher day... when every student shows up with parent(s) in tow ... even in the pouring rain...
Alumni who return with their younger siblings and still oooh and aaah over the changes they see in their old school ... especially newly-minted sixth graders who then proceed to gush about their new middle school... enthusiasm is contagious...
The well-earned exhaustion that hits at the end of a frenetic day...
