And my theory is they will ALWAYS pick teachers. Guess they think we're some
kinda wise beings..or see the "good" in everybody...or professional? I'd
like to think it's a "good" thing.

Yes. I've usually deferred mine to the summertime. I find them so
interesting. It's also scary to see some of the types chosen to decide
someone else's fate. These people will act one way during selection but once
on a panel, have a personality change.

I can also add a "pet peeve" here. My district is so cheap that when I get
my $5 a day check for gas from the courthouse, I have to turn it in to the
irksome district if it's a school day. I'm guessing you all have to do that
too, hummm? Toodles....Bunki
