Being a middle school teacher is a combination of serving in the Peace Corps, organizing an amoebae circus, competing in a decathlon, and earning an Academy Award. In no other job do you laugh aloud, ignite someone’s imagination, bring peace, pose conflict, kiss frogs, quell fears, affirm goodness, stand amazed, and read a crumpled love note that assures the end of the world by 3:00 that afternoon. And that’s just the end of first period.

(Rick Wormeli, Meet Me in the Middle)
