I'm new to this forum and have been perusing some of the recent and past posts. I've got to say that I'm seeing a whole lot of griping going on! I should think that in this horrid economy, with so many teacher lay-offs and so few jobs out there in any field, a teacher who hjas a secure position should be on their knees thanking the Lord!! You have a good salary, good benefits, summers off, snow days, delayed openings due to iinclement weather, life insurance, dental insurance and peace of mind knowing that you'll have a paycheck every other Friday to put food on the table and pay your rent. It really annoys me to hear all you teachers whining about how much you hate your jobs. Quit....and work, REALLY WORK at Walmart for $7.00 per hour. Do that for a bout one week and you'll beg for your "horrible" taching job back! Oh, by the way, I'm a retired teacher.
