I love my job, earn my salary and I am a benefit to my school. I gladly work hours after the school day ends and everyone in my family knows that Sunday (not Monday) is my first day of the week, so don't invite me to anything, I can't go. I'm grading and planning. I teach kids that would scare you to death and make you look like a wimp in front of your wife as you speed past my school because you can't even drive in neighborhoods where I walk and thrive. My kids grow, my kids go to college, my kids learn morals, ethics and the value of working your butt off from me. And I'm the norm, not the exception. My job is wonderful and challenging at the same time and you couldn't do it if someone paid you 3 times what I make. You know nothing.
