With my job, I do an additional 100-250 pages of paperwork on each student I have. I get between 15-20 students each school year. A 40 minute prep period where I'm typically working one-on-one with a student does not account for that.
Society has a pretty awful perception of teachers.
No shit. People like King and SNR must not have known a Teacher in their life's.
Teachers work long ass hours at night and on weekends. And that 3 month vacation is pure BS. No teacher gets that.
A teacher (Soto) making $22K a year and a teachers aid making $10 an hour shielded their kids with their bodies and gave their lives to try to protect the children. I would bet that 99% of teachers in America would make that same decision.
