Wouldn't Trade It For Anything

I have taught preschool, kindergarten, first grade, third grade, fifth grade and 6th grade.  All in all, I would have to say that I have the greatest job in the world.  There is no paycheck that is more rewarding the watching a students have a proverbial "ah-hah" moment  Everytime I get overwhelmed by my student debt and school work, I remember that each day I get to create another "ah hah" moment.

Indeed, teaching is a very noble profession. There would be no lawyers, doctors, engineers, mayors, congressmen, senators, and even president without a teacher. <br />
<br />
I also consider my teachers especially those in grade school as second parents because they have been very supportive during those crucial and formative years..<br />
<br />
Hence, it's time for us to really show more love and respect to teachers...:)

Those "ah- hah" moments should be worth more money because you created that doctor and that lawyer...<br />
<br />
It's funny how professionals like doctors and lawyers would be outraged if they had to assess and evaluate their patient or situation with a room full of 8 patients or plaintiffs. Normal teachers have about 25 patients and plaintiffs...<br />

A psychologist would not be able to do her job correctly if there were 20 other people in therapy all talking at the same time.<br />
<br />
Teachers should be respected more = Teachers should be paid more.<br />

Where are America's priorities?

It must be so great, if I taught I would like to teach younger children rather than older children, only because I know I was cute when I was little, as soon as I hit the teens I was a nightmare in school :)
