When it comes down to it, I love my job because I love the students. The students are so inspiring and do so many great things. My biggest job satisfaction is knowing that I touched the life of a student in a positive way.
So, today, I got a sweet piece of job satisfaction when a student dropped off cupcakes for a coworker and I. We had spent a lot of time coaching her and preparing her for a speech she did on behalf of the college. Seeing her give the speech incredibly well was satisfaction enough for me, but this cupcake truly made my day. I was so touched and it reminded me why I love my job.
