***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.

My mom retired as a school teacher. Pretty cool to students come up and tell her how they helped them along in life. Life is so much about giving your blood sweat and tears and there were lots of tears about qutting because of parents school boards and other teachers. She made it through.

Don Manley, my fifth grade teacher, was the best teacher I ever had. I looked forward to going to school and challenging myself. We would do fractions in class, and he was so motivating I was able to solve an addition fraction problem with a 47 digit denominator. We weren't allowed to use calculators. We didn't have computers. We used our noggins, pencils and lots of graph paper so we could keep our columns straight.

He wasn't just a good teacher, he was also a good man.

I just started teaching middle school this year. Started out around 39K/year. But, as someone said earlier, the health care is horrid. Good thing my wife works at a hospital because for my family it would be like $1300/mo through the district.

Thats the issue with Teacher pay. A pay cut was put in place. Instead of paying for insurance they decided to make it cost so much that only the desperate would use the insurance and the cost would be on them. Whereas 5 years ago or so the school picked up the tab.

I've had to carry my wife on my insurance for over 10 years now.

the teachers in my high school were pretty terrible. But it was small town kansas...

For example, one teacher got drunk all the time. Had a flask in her desk. She got caught many times too, never fired her or anything. A terrible person and a terrible teacher.

Another, just sat there at her desk with a blank stare, never actually taught anything and had a horrible attitude.

Another, laughed at kids when they got beat up by others and did nothing to stop it.

Several, were high on their power over the kids/teens.

There was like 3 teachers that I remember out of all of high school that seemed to enjoy what they do and were good teachers.

I guess my school just had the bad apples.

I wonder if on average the teachers in small towns are worse than those in the bigger cities?
