***OFFICIAL Teacher Appreciation Thread***

The last year I've seen and read a lot of criticism of teachers. Greedy, Lazy etc. etc.

Just like every profession there are bad apples. But, I think most teachers chose their profession to help kids instead of a profession that pays more. As the Sandy Hook tragedy proved someday that teacher may take a bullet for your child.

I know that there are teachers that touched us all, made us aware of the wonder in life, helped us get through a tough subject, taught us something, helped that light go off in your head. Let's share our stories of teachers that have touched our lives.

I have long thought that teaching is one of the most undervalued professions. It has to be a calling, for as little as most of them make, and it literally shapes the future for everyone. Why it isn't more highly regarded (or paid) I will never know.

I'm married to a teacher. One year she logged all the hours she put in for the year. That year she made less than the minimum wage. She cared about the kids, not the money.

My wife is the same way. She is on her 14th year of teaching and loves it. She knew from a very early age that this was her calling. So much so that when she was a little girl, she would come home from school and get her stuffed animals arranged on her bed and play school.

She works late nearly every day and only takes off 3 weeks during the summer. The rest of the time she is either looking for classes to take to help her be a better teacher or working in her classroom planning with her grade level workmates for the next school year.

She is the single most dedicated worker, in any field, I have ever know.

My wife is a teacher too. She teaches middle school art. I've seen her buy hundreds of dollars worth of art supplies like paint, paper, clay, etc out of her own pocket, because the school district doesn't give her enough of a budget to give the kids what they need to do their projects the right way. She never complains, she just loves the kids and wants them to succeed. I don't know where she gets the patience. Teachers certainly deserve summer vacations, that's for sure!

You don't know any teachers... do you?

That 180 days bullshit is the biggest lie you will ever be told. My wife works longer hours and more weekends, willingly and for no additional pay, than anyone I know. She takes 3 weeks off per year and the rest of the time she is working on personal development so that she be a better and more effective educator.

Any teacher out there that does nothing but the bare minimum... is guaranteed a super shitty teacher.

Yep.

The snow days myth is a nice one too. Those days have to be made up. It's not like when it snows we just get to say the heck with the day.

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.

I was joking in my earlier post. I remember the epic thread a year or two back where there was a big argument about the 180 days thing.
