Re: Considering Teaching High School Math/Physics in Delawar
    food for thought

    Sagacious advice. Anyone considering the teaching profession
    as a life-long career and a rewarding vocation, should think
    long and hard, observe daily life in today's schools,
    especially in the urban environment, before spending the time
    and money on education and certification.

    On a whole, it's just not worth it. Only about 20% of teachers
    make it twenty years as educators. The other 80% burn out and
    wisely choose more rational careers.

    However, if you really feel you could be one of the true
    educatiors and not just a simple "book teacher," by all means,
    to the attack!!!
