Dear People Who Hate Teenagers and Think They Are Only Trouble,

I am here to tell you that I have living proof that

despite their moodiness
despite their hormonal craziness

despite their sometimes (most times) serious lack of motivation
they are capable of love.

They have the capacity to be grateful and actually make you feel pretty darn special.

I used to take the day off on my birthday to have a whole day just to myself. But I'll tell you what. Spending the day with these students whom I have spent the whole first semester growing to love was a present in and of itself today. I love my job.
