I think construction workers make more than teachers. When I was in Alaska, I asked the dude that held the "stop/slow" sign how much he was getting paid to stand there and twirl a sign. He said 18$ an hour.

What on earth is wrong with working construction? No wonder people get crappy houses when teachers and other people are telling kids you're a failure if you don't become an academic. I'm a college student myself, but I don't see anything wrong with my buddies studying to become electricians and builders in highschool. They get a good, honest living, secure peoples houses for fires, makes it not rain through the roof, makes sure there ARE HOUSES to live in etc. Math teachers... Well, I was done w

I would love to know where teachers make $50 an hour...in most states in the US, the starting pay is about $40k, which translates to about $20 an hour, if they only work 40 hours a week. Most teachers put in many hours beyond school, and often have to take summer jobs.

71... I work a's an aide in a classroom while going to school to become a teacher and teacher I work with she makes $58 an hour. this is high school level. if a teacher works college level they instantly make over $90,000 a year and go up from there. I work in LA county, Long Beach, Ca.

Janitors get paid a lot too. Or you could move to the oil sands and make 120k/yr starting. Point is, professional jobs are always going to be better than the trades when you consider everything.

my step dad is a plumber and he makes nearly $50 and hour and he's getting a promotion soon. my grandma is a teacher and she earns less than $40. so basically your teacher is a jealous old bitch.

37- they're actually making upwards of fifty per hour up here now. And MY math teacher keeps telling us there is nothing wrong with having a janitorial-like job, one that isn't the most paying. The world is taken care of by these "lower class" workers; I can't believe I'm saying this, but we almost have too many "educated people." well, you wouldn't be able to tell on teh Internet, but still... ;P

It might not be the best job to some people, but that might've been his dream job. People do the best they can to get by and support their family. And somebody has to get the job done.

Usually teachers aren't in it for the money, more the chance to work in a field they like and influence young people for the better, so pointing out her pay is probably a moot point. However, she does sound like a pompous bitch, and there is no shame in doing any legitamet job. Better she compare the situation with some lazy benefits cheat. And take her head out of her ass.

dude someone 100% did that at my school my senior year. someone broke into the school to steal computers and bc they started locking the bathrooms during classes and after classes the thief took a shit in the drawer of one of the math teachers desk and wiped their ass with one of the tests that we were to take the next day. oh and when revering to math teachers I always use singular not "maths" not 100% sure but sounds grammatically incorrect to me, op might want to pay attention in English cla

Maths is what they use in Britain, Australia, etc. presumably because it's short for mathematics? I think that the term math we use in north america is from arithmetic and not pluralised.

I hope you pointed out 'Er, actually that's my father,' so she felt like the arrogant dick she is... then it'd be her FML
