TeachersCongratulations to all my teacher friends who are getting to the end of the year. I have such respect for teachers - and not just because they perform such an important role in society. It's because they always have to be on the ball.
Most of us, if we are having a rough day and still have to go into work, can at least hide in our office or cubicle. You can't hide if you're a teacher. Who wants to break up with their boyfriend and then spend six hours in front of 100 12-year-olds, pretending to care about Farewell to Manzanar. I'd rather have a job where I can duck behind my computer if I need time to myself.
So, to teachers everywhere: Thanks for what you do.
