15 Teacher Luxuries You’ll Find Hard to Believe Are Real

1 min


It’s no secret that the life of a teacher is far from luxurious. We didn’t choose this profession to have an abundance of free time, a leisurely schedule, long lunch breaks, or a big paycheck. We choose to teach because we know how much of a difference we make, every day. We do it for our kids. We do it for those gratifying moments of watching a student grow. But with everything that we do, the simple pleasures in life become royal teacher luxuries. Here are a few examples…

1. Chewing your food…
