2016 was a heck of a year. While there were many ups and downs, educators continued to share their love for their work by posting positively using #TeachLikeMe. Here are sixteen of our favorite posts from Instagram this year. And if you want to see what other educators and future teachers had to say on Facebook and Twitter, just search the hashtag!
1. "Are you sure you want to teach? You're too smart to be a teacher! You could make way more money." I hear all of these and more the moment I tell people I want to be a teacher. Here are my answers. I have never been more sure of anything in my life. Do you not want your child to be taught by the smartest person you know?"
