Bad wisdom, vol. 1

Once upon a time, someone told me that there were only two reasons to teach Spanish to students:  "Either you love Spanish, or you love students.  And there are going to be days, no matter how much you love them, that the students are going to drive you crazy.  So you REALLY have to love Spanish."

I do really love Spanish.  And it turns out that, as much as I love them, the students drive me crazy.

But there's a verb in the phrase "teach Spanish to students."  Turns out, I love teaching, too.
