This might sound like a cliche but I honestly love my job. One of the main reasons that I enjoy coming to work everyday is because of my amazing students. I teach 6th GATE students (gifted and talented education) at a school in Anaheim, California. My school might be located close to Disneyland but the small community where my student's live is by no means the happiest place on earth. The school where I teach has the highest population of English language learners in the district and is filled with poverty, gangs, and crime. My students have seen and experienced things that literally bring me to tears. However, no matter how difficult the situation is, my students persevere through it without complaining. My class has the best attendance in school because they love learning. Whatever project or assignment I give them, they try their very hardest and are extremely creative due to lack of resources because they simply can't afford to buy supplies. Almost 99% are on free lunch.
