Do you find the job enjoyable? Would it be worth returning to after an extended period of time?

My question is--what should I do to celebrate the submission of my teaching portfolio today?

Should I have eaten that box of asiago and sundried tomato crackers?

Probably.

How hot will it be when I go on vacation in a few weeks?

Will I make any new friends during my week of orientation at my new teaching job?

How urgently should I be looking for a place of my own, closer to my job? (Currently I'm living at my parents' house, which is a 30-minute commute away, so I can save money and keep good company. Also because I haven't put in serious effort yet to hunt for an apartment.)

Why are some teachers hesitant to give out extra credit?

Probably because it makes extra work for them/the markers, or they feel that doing so won't result in an accurate reflection of students' knowledge. I think it's cool when it's stuff like bonus questions on tests that everyone will answer, but I don't think I agree with voluntary projects that will basically boost the marks of the hard-workers to be on par with those who've already learned more of the material. Personally, I feel that if someone gets 100% in a class, that should basically mean that they mastered all the material that was presented, not that they did 11% extra work but only learned 90% of the material, because those are significantly different things that would show up identically on a transcript (not that transcripts, especially compared across different teachers, curricula and school systems are anywhere close to perfect representations of students' knowledge). And teachers could design extra credit material to ensure the students are actually displaying knowledge they haven't already exhibited, but again, that takes time and effort, especially since that would require individualization of assignments.

Why such an emphasis on marks in the first place?
