Elementary School Teacher in Meadville:
Pace yourself and teaching is about the love of the profession and the love for your students and the staff. Always be positive and stay away from the crazy people.

"Your pay does NOT increase and people look DOWN on teachers."
Elementary School Teacher in Oviedo:
Do it because you love it. You may never get a raise and if you do it is so minute that it doesn't matter (like $200 a year). People view you as someone who is below them. In addition, they don't want to increase your yearly wage. They feel like you chose a job taking care of kids and should get paid accordingly. That is untrue. YOU are not a daycare worker, you are an educator who went to school for 4 years to get a degree. So unfair. The positives: You get the summer off, spring break, and winter break. You get to teach kids how to learn. It is an AMAZING feeling.
