It is only this year that I will actually be making more than I did as a
secretary. (clearing more etc) When i was a secretary (for the boe) I came
at a certain time, I left at a very specific time, did not take home work,
got paid to take classes, got an hour uninterrupted for lunch. I did not
have to buy my own supplies, put in 15 hour days, or get abused by parents.
My clothes were always clean...<g> And my work was always done.
I love teaching...but....it was such hard work...I had health problems
because of it....finally we have that figured out and I am finally starting
the year feeling decent. I was/am always broke because I spend money on my
classroom. And I work and work and work. Again, finally this year, I think
I should be able to have some sort of life outside school. Of course what do
I want to do??? Take classes to help me teach better!!! hehehehe
I love what I do...but it sure is hard sometimes!!!
