  20. When students are so engaged that it's silent and you can tell they are all in their own world
  21. When students are arguing over who's right about a problem and call me over to decide
  23. When a student calls me over for help then shoos me away because they already found their mistake
  24. When I walk around the room and ask students if they need me and they say no
  25. When the copiers and printers work awesomely
  26. Color coordinating ALL THE THINGS
  27. Cleaning my desk off at the end of a school day
