On Saturday morning, as I was organizing some materials for my classroom and listening to Morning Edition, I heard Scott Simon's very timely weekly editorial about work. I have always believed work is about more than my labor and the wage I receive from it. I make no secret of the fact that I love what I do. I know that I would be lost without the opportunity to teach. Simon sums up that sentiment and so much more Every time my job frustrates me, I plan to read it again. The text and audio are here.
Well worth your time.
