Teaching should be more than just a job.
Instead of thinking of your career in education as just something to suffer through every day until you get to the weekend, change your focus to what it really should be about: serving kids.
When your attitude is to serve students, your approach to teaching will change. You will be more likely to show your students that you care about them as people. You will try to find something to like about each one. You will do the best you can to help them as much as possible.
Don't just see your students as instruments to help you get good test scores and a strong reputation. Go to a few of their ballgames, concerts, and other events. These things may not seem like a big deal, but they will show your students that you care about them.
Your students will be the ones who benefit.
