took the words right out of my mouth...

... and my heart, too. An excellent post here at The Cool Cat Teacher Blog , I haven't had my own first week of school as an official teacher, but can already say I want to teach for the rest of my life.

3rd grade has been much slower and quieter, so far, compared to 5th. I'm sure it's largely due to test prep, test prep, test prep, review of test prep, and more test prep. Practice test comes Mon, then finally! the real thing.

I love that you can say that with absolutely no qualifiers. It is a very strong and powerful thing.

It certainly is! It's a pull, a push, a desire and need all at the same time; my wife asked after the 1st week of my student teaching if I could see myself doing it as a career, and there was no doubt!
