I feel like I burn thousands of calories when teaching. Lol. I'm a foreign language teacher and I have 6 beginner classes (12 hours each week). What y'all think? I'm talking about the talking, the moving, the gestures and all.
I started my diet in early January and I'm now resuming work. It's the first day and I feel so exhausted after the first class already.

It certainly counts as activity and does increase your calorie burn. Wearing an activity monitor might help give an idea of how much.
However, it doesn't do everything that more formal exercise may do. That is, it probably doesn't build the muscle that actual strength training would do. Likewise, it probably is not at high enough intensity to improve cardiovascular system.
Still, it is much better than for example than sitting at a desk all day.
