I am an art teacher and an artist, I think that they compliment each other and it is great not to have to choose one over the other,

  I am currently researching for a masters course and am wondering how many art teachers really wanted to be artists; but for some reason (afraid of failure, didn't want to be a starving artist...)became teachers instead.
  Then, how do you think art teachers are different than say, math or science or language teachers. Did a high percentage of math teachers want to be mathematicians or science teachers, scientists......or language teachers, writers.....
  what are your thoughts...
