I love my job teaching middle school, but everyday feels like a failure. My job, the sole reason for getting up in the morning, is to teach increasing boring mathematics (like finding the greatest common factor and simplifying fractions) to middle schoolers who have no intrest in it, no real desire to do well and no concequences if they don't do well. So, ultimately my performance is based on whether or not 100 children did what they were supposed to do, and on a normal day, 75 of them didn't.
Studying for the LSAT is my break from that. What I do on the LSAT in Decemeber is soley based on how well *I* prepare for the test. AND doing well in December is my ticket back into school, which honestly is my favorite place to be.
