Old Teachers

The call went out begging for people to come in this weekend to finish marking geometry regents.  Against my husbands advice, I went in, Jewish guilt being the driving force.  Imagine my surprise to see the room full of older teachers, teachers who have continually been abused, people who care about doing the right thing and doing the job well.

So much for the myth that we are only in it for the paycheck.  I am willing to bet none of the senior teachers were there for the money.

I hate that anyone believes teachers are in it for the money. I offer lots of extra time that I never see a paycheck for--and I'm glad to do it.

Me too, actually.
