I have been teaching for only a few years now and have enjoyed every minute of it.
I believe hands on teaching is very important, and choice is a driving force in the classroom. Instead of reading novel units with my class every few weeks, I encourage them to pick and read their own books. After I teach a mini-lesson (roughly 10-15 minutes), they read for the rest of class, implementing what they were just taught, and completing an assignment that goes along with their reading. This has helped my students find out what they LIKE to read, and gets them reading more.

I love reading as well as writing, but teaching is my passion.
