    I struggle with this notion on a daily basis. I LOVE what I do. I would probably teach for free if I could survive by doing so. But should I? Should my profession continue to be on the low end of the pay scale simply because I get non-monetary rewards for what I do?

    I don't know. On the one hand, I don't want people to become teachers because of the money. On the other hand, I want smart, highly qualified people to become teachers, and the only way to attract more smart, highly qualified people is to offer them a high salary.
