    and this may sound terrible, but after going to school as long as I did I wasn't going to make "slave" wages working as a teacher. Period. End of conversation. If when I entered the workforce they teachers had maybe been paid 25-30% higher I might have done something else for a living.

    There are of course more than a few folks better than myself that could have made more not teaching, but choose to teach.

    But alas many, many more that choose to do something else like I did cause they could get a better pay check. Most of the time you get what you pay for.
