Teachers and Wall Street

I know, I know!  I have been putting such little effort into my blogs recently.   I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it in the last 4 posts but I’ve been really sick.  I had planned on posting my own thoughts about all the demoralizing talk about teachers over the last week due to everything going on in Wisconsin, but I haven’t had the energy even to breathe let alone write a blog post.

Jon Stewart seems like the only one out there who is supporting teachers and trying to bring to light how asinine it is to use the “their job is easy” rhetoric in order to cut our salary and benefits.  I appreciate his words, and they’re funny to boot!


  1. You'd think that parents at least would know that having 20-30 kids of any age is no cake-walk.

  2. I heard that the average salary in Wisconsin is $59,000. I'm not sure who said it since I listen to all news channels. In some parts of the country, $59k is a ton of money. It is here in central PA. When Fred started working in PA in 1998, he started at $20,000 and we were very grateful for it. Together, we made $49,000 and thought that we were rich. I understand that $49,000 is nothing in Los Angeles so we should all take into consideration where people live and how much they earn vs non-public employees. I hope that you can see that I struggle with this and that I am trying to make a reasonable point.

  3. OMG. That was great. My favorite part was how we don't work hard cause we only work 9 months a year. Tell that to my migraine tonight!
