My wife is a teacher, and our big trip for the year was to ... Dallas. :)

No one does it for the money, though. Both she and I have quit higher-paying jobs in the past to try something that was closer to our hearts. I believe strongly that teaching is a calling that you happen to get paid for.

I swear I'm not starting new pages on purpose ... it's like I've been struck with some freakish D&D-style curse.

At times I think about taking my Math degree and becoming a teacher, but getting used to a teacher's pay stub would definately take some getting used to.


Back in 1981, I got paid $10 an hour for my summer job at the Safeway Warehouse in Clackamas Oregon.  I (seriously) stacked yogurt.

If I had stayed at Safeway Warehouse, I would have been much more wealthy...and also dead inside.

I accepted low pay as a consequence of job satisfaction...it just wrankles sometimes that my pay check reflects the disrespect society overall has for my profession.
