This week, teachers from across the US are sharing the reasons why they get out of bed every morning under the hashtag #LoveTeaching.

The initiative was started as an attempt by Sean McComb, a high school English teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, and the 2014 National Teacher of the Year, and his friends to put the love back into their vocation.

A year later and it has become a nationwide Twitter campaign, with thousands of teachers sharing the reasons why they love their jobs. 

Here's a pick of the best so far:
