It's Official!

It's official, teaching is the least boring job, so says a BBC report:

When asked why they found their job interesting, 81% of teachers questioned said it was the challenge of the role and the same proportion said it was because "no two days were the same". The opportunity to interact with people was the job's most positive feature quality - mentioned by 86% of respondents - while 64% welcomed the opportunity to use their creativity. Michael Day, executive director at the TDA, said: "These findings demonstrate that one of the chief benefits of teaching is the sheer variety of the job - that no two days are the same."

The long holidays and the presents that the kids get you are nice perks too (I had some vintage champagne this year!).


  • Many of the same things are said about my career (library science). I loved the interaction with the people (mostly graduate students and faculty) and seeing them catch on, but most I enjoyed learning something new constantly. Now I do that by keeping up with blogs like yours!
