Being a teacher is noble, honorable work. You do it because you have a passion for it and a commitment to making the world a better place for your students. Sadly, you certainly don't do it for the glory, the graft, or a fair and reasonable salary. No, it's nothing like going into politics. That's the irony. It's always politicians and the followers they incite who are pissing on our teachers, whether it's a total bloated pussbag like Chris Christie waging war on the New Jersey teachers union over little things like paychecks or pencils or Flor-i-duh's Devil-possessed Ron DeSantis waging crackpot culture wars and telling his sucker followers that teachers are "woke" and "groomers" with some kind of homosexual muslim marxist agenda. It's not just governors of course. The assault against education also comes from our churches and school boards which nazi political vermin like DeSantis are actively attempting to stuff with virulent nutjobs just like Moscow Mitch stuffs courts.
And dare I mention the self-appointed Christonut textbook police and having to always have an ear tuned into the possibility of a gun goon coming down the hall?
