Anyway, they get $50k plus a yea
Most I know are making in the 40s, unless you're talking about a real veteran teacher (15+ years in teaching) hell, some who teach in smaller towns are making as little as 30k a year.
they get to retire at 50,
they get great benefits,
they do? My wife's health insurance isn't any better or cheaper than any job i've had.
but get 1 hour off plus a 30 minute lunch.
During that 1 hour "off" my wife is forced to lesson plan with her group or hold tutoring hours for any student who needs it.
30 minute lunch is not very long when you work out in a portable and have to walk to the main building to grab your lunch from the fridge. It's long enough, but don't act like it's a privilege.
they work 8 hour days
LOL. sometimes they do, but sometimes the state or administration is requiring extra bull shite that you have to stay and do. or you can do it at home.
eachers will bitch that off period is planning but I don't get an hour to plan at work nor do I get any of the other perks such as getting paid 3 plus months to not work.
Yet you're able to post on a message board while you're at work. I seriously doubt you're working 100% of the time. Planning is work for them, as lesson plans are required by administration.
lus with teacher unions suffocating the schools, they get job security
My wife's district isn't union.
I guess I chose the wrong profession.
I guess so. Go try it.
I'm not saying it's harder than any other job. The summer is nice, but most jobs allow for much better pay, so it kind of balances out.
I think you don't know as much about teaching as you think you do. Again, not saying it's terribly difficult or isn't a great job, but it isn't the fricking glamour world you think it is.
