223 – You Can Love Teaching, Love Your Students, and Still Love Time Away Teachers on Fire

I’m writing this post from a delightful cafe in a quaint little touristy town near my home. The sunshine is pouring in through three walls of windows. Steam from my freshly brewed coffee wafts lazily upward. A creamy slice of carrot cake sits waiting to be consumed.
