i think it would be better to pay attention, or else you might end up as... her!
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 with maths two years ago, and I haven't had much use for it since.
Actually teachers make over $50 an hour, however they only work like 7 hours a day. So while she makes great money with benefits and a retirement plant. Her father probably makes more in the long run. Personally I would rather work inside in air conditioned or heated instead of on a roof for a livin
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.
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
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.
oh my. probably mexican. im mexican. i know what it feels like when your father is a gardener -_-
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 class as well.
