My secret to enjoying my job as a teacher is:
Really being conscious of and appreciating the rewarding moments, and maintaining a good work/life balance!

Little things that me me happy are:
Spending time in the country, listening to music with good headphones, and wearing really cozy socks

In my first year of teaching, I wished I knew:

When I need help, I usually turn to:
My parents and close friends 

A great teaching tool or resource to have is:
A solid community of teachers around you!

The best teaching advice I was ever told was:
