41- A high salary shouldn't be your motivator if you are a teacher. In my opinion, teachers should teach because they want to educate students. I feel lucky to work with teachers who have the same opinion I do; online charter school teachers get paid worse than traditional instructors, but I see more compassion from them than I ever saw when I was in high school.
58, That's great and all but most of us, despite our passions, will pursue careers that have a future. For instance, I'd love to be an actor or visual effects artist but since the chances of making a decent living on that is next to none I have gone into another area I am also interested in. Keep in mind also, in the environment of teaching today the teachers get treated like dirt by students, walked all over, not supported by the schools, community or government and quickly judged for anything they do wrong. That kind of working environment coupled with the weak salary is enough to break down anyone over time. I certainly wouldn't want to do it even if I was really passionate about it.
41- Teachers in Upstate New York tend to get paid $55,000/year. Plus benefits. At least that's what they get paid at the high school I went to. That's also the base salary for the 2011-2012 school year. I was talking to my English teacher from my senior year and she makes about $77,000/year. Principals make well over $100,000/year. Granted, we're also hurting pretty badly up here, budget wise, and a lot of teachers are losing their jobs. No job security = bad teaching (sometimes).
27- From my experience, that thought never even crosses their minds. It's genuinely pathetic that teens of my generation feel entitled to do whatever the hell they feel like and don't believe that they are ever in the wrong, and god forbid that anyone punishes them for their behavior, that would be insane.
You were being rude and disruptive by calling her out in front of the whole class. You should have seen her privately after class to discuss your concerns. You wouldn't shame her in front of everyone and you'd probably get a blow job. All the teacher-student videos I see end up that way.
They have lowered the standards for teaching degrees so much...
Sounds like me in Spanish class
