    I have a heart for teachers. My maternal grandmother was one, and one of her classmates later became my 3rd grade teacher! That was a good feeling. :)

    in the state prisons, and had students running to the classroom so they could start working.
    In 13 years i produced the system's best students 10 times!
    I gave them the skills and desire to get out, stay out, and become taxpayers rather than tax suckers.
    Recidivism from 66% to 22%. Then along came super buttlick Rick Perry, and his Lege who cut our budget to the point of massive layoffs of quality teachers, substituting alternative certification civilians who had been laid off and didn't know how to teach another person.

    I watched it.

    Not impressed. He's a teacher bfd. He works part time has summers off uses the same hackneyed lesson plan over and over.

    I never understood why teachers think they are so fucking noble.

    What teacher's make is often considering the base pay of beginning educators. The inside joke amongst them is to always talk bad about how they have it. Lets look at some facts.


    They make more than most firemen, policemen, and other bureacrats on average in any same county of the United States. At the same time, they get all holidays and nearly three months off in the summer for that same average pay. They get weekends off. They get evenings off without having to work late unless they choose to do so.

    Teachers have health plans better than the average American. Many have perks, such as a free pair of contacts or glasses every year. Many districts encourage professional travel outside the district for conventions and seminars that are luxurious, to say the least.

    Let's not forget that they work inside weather it be rain, sleet, snow, or hot desert sun. Now that is an undervalued plus.

    Keep perpetuating the myth that teachers have it so bad. I did for years for obviously all too selfish reasons.

    Teaching in the United States is one of the most pampered professions in the country.
