Teaching is more than just a job, it’s a calling. It requires commitment and sacrifices… A LOT of sacrifices! But the more exhausted you are at the end of each day, the more you know how much of a difference you are making in the world. Even though they gain so much in a school year, here are just a few things teachers lose.

1. Sleep.
