I Know My Parents Loved Me Very Much But… 

By reddit user atbest

I was one of seven kids and I have to say my folks weren’t very smart, trying to raise all of us on a single substitute teacher’s salary. But they loved us very much. I know because they often said so. They tossed around the words so much they might have been punctuation to everything else they said.

Omg about that last ask!! It's really possible to save 22,000~ by yourself from teaching in Korea? Or was that from your job you have now?

I never taught English, but knowing average salaries of teachers here, its possible for two people to save that :)

Glyndermothers AU

Alright, so! 

Cinder and Glynda, during their Beacon days, have a healthy, rewarding relationship. 

They move in together after school, they are happy, just having the time of their lives…

And then Glynda’s old friend Summer has a dangerous mission, so she asks them to babysit while she goes on it, since her husband refused to let her go alone.

I’m so tired of how Coach is always portrayed as this huge homophobic asswipe of a father to Bitty. Like yes, Coach is a southern man who loves football and Bitty is afraid of telling his father that he’s gay. But like I’m so tired of Coach being written as disowning his son and all of this other stuff. Like in canon, Coach is supportive.
Bitty did figure skating from ages 7-14, and the only reason he stopped was because they moved and the commute to train would be too much. Coach encouraged him in that. Coach went to his competitions. Coach paid for it. And figure skating is NOT cheap, especially for a family who is living off of a teacher’s salary.
Coach got a new job at a different school so they had to move before Bitty’s freshmen year of high school. Why would Coach do that? Maybe because his son was locked in a supply closer overnight by the football team, Coach’s team? Coach’s team locked his son, his tiny, happy, sunshine son in a supply closet. Coach was the head coach of a football team, and at his new school he was still a head coach. Do you know how hard that is? Coach probably started looking for a new position the moment bitty said “the football team did it.” Because his only son was being terrorized by the boys on his team.
Coach never came to Samwell, it was always Suzanne. Because Coach is a high school teacher. And the head coach of a football team. During summer and fall, he is in full swing of football, and can’t leave Madison.
Coach and Suzanne suspect that Bitty is gay, but since Bitty hasn’t said anything, they won’t either.
I just want Coach to be written as a confused, but supportive dad, and who loves his son more than anything but doesn’t know how to show it.

Highly Paid Teachers Hilariously Debunked [via DailyKos]

Teachers’ hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work nine or ten months a year! It’s time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do – babysit!

We can get that for less than minimum wage.

A friend on facebook shared this with me, and it’s a hoot. Read on.

So each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now how many students do they teach in a day…maybe 30? So that’s $19.50 x 30 = $585 a day.

However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.

LET’S SEE….

That’s $585 X 180= $105,300 per year. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master’s degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6-½ hours X 30 children X 180 days = $280,800 per year.

Wait a minute – there’s something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacher’s salary (nationwide) is $50,000.

$50,000/180 days = $277.77 per day / 30 students = $9.25 / 6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per student – a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!)

WHAT A DEAL!!!!

Dean/Cas: Your Love is My Drug

For Ayla (deathkisseddean) who requested a destiel AU with pharmacist!dean / 1,187 words

Being an elementary school teacher had a lot of perks. Summers off. Influencing the youth of America. Snack time. Being exposed to fifteen germ incubators on a daily basis was not one of them.

Once a year, usually in the fall when his immune system was acclimating to being surrounded by children who did not consistently cover their mouths when they coughed, Castiel got hit with what always felt like the worst head cold of his life.

This year he had eight-year-old Ellie Winters and a poorly timed, uncovered sneeze to thank.

Thanks to Ellie, Castiel currently found himself in the local Walgreens, looking for the best over-the-counter cold medicine his teacher salary could buy. He grabbed a box of tissues, some Afrin, a bottle of Nyquil, and trudged to the pharmacy counter for the good stuff – the extra strength, extra awesome decongestants that could only be purchased directly from the pharmacist.

“Hey there. What can I do for you?”

Castiel narrowed his eyes at the perky blonde store clerk. Her healthy, energetic presence seemed like a direct insult to his current state of being. “Hello. May I please have some of the prescription strength Sudafed?”

“Sure thing. Let me see your ID and I’ll have someone grab a box for you. Winchester!” She called over her shoulder while simultaneously giving Castiel’s driver’s license a once over. “I need a box of ultra Sudafed.” She eyed Castiel sympathetically as she handed him back his ID. “And hurry up, would ya? Not sure how much longer this one is gonna make it.”

Teachers Get Paid Way Too Much...oh wait...

Teachers’ hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year! It’s time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do - babysit! We can get that for minimum wage. That’s right. Let’s give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan– that equals 6 ½ hours). Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now how many students do they teach in a day…maybe 30? So that’s $19.50 x 30 = $585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.

Hello:] First of all your blog is amazing!:) and second I wanted to ask your opinion on what life someone persuing a teaching career can expect?do they earn good money to make an OK living? Can they pay their college loans if any without any trouble?

That depends a lot on three things:

  1. Location- Your salary is going to vary among different regions across the nation.
  2. The University you attend- If choose a particularlly expensive school (like a private or out of state university) that will obiously affect how much debt you will have.
  3. How long you’re in school-If you take longer to graduate or decide to go to grad school, tuition bills and loans can add up pretty quickly. But you will earn higher wages with an advaned degree.

Resources:

Linking teacher salaries to their students’ test scores, whether they have national certification, and any local leadership duties they take up are also destined to flop. No matter the compensation scheme, these strategies fail to acknowledge the impact of school culture and climate on work satisfaction—which often takes precedence over pay for experienced teachers. After all, thousands of teachers opt to work in private schools for far less compensation, largely because conditions tend to be more favorable for teachers.

Some of the schools serving America’s neediest children lose over half of their teaching staff every five years.

My major is art education. I'm really interested in teaching elementary kids art, but I'm not sure how well I'll like it when it comes down to it, and I don't want to be poor forever. What are the perks of being an art teacher? Is it worth it in the long run?

We’ve actually covered a lot of information about art education majors.

I think those should cover all your bases @erinandthepurplecrayon
