I disagree that NO

I disagree that NO teacher...unless they're a college professor is paid six figures! I know of college professors that do not make six figures, and, conversely high school teachers that make more than six figures! After all, in NY state, where our taxes are the highest, we require a Masters degree of all teachers within 5 years of obtaining a bachelors in education! That is why I am currently resentful of teachers complaining about no renewal of their labor contract and I am working for $9 an hour! BTW, I have 2BSs! I am no slacker, just not in the right place in this POOR economy!

Eyes just opened... Thank you

Eyes just opened... Thank you all!!!My career choice was made by some lady checing a blank on my college application because nobody made me think about MY future before my "future" came around.So now I've been complaining for 22 years how much my IT job stinks, how the "bosses" don't care that an average day is between 12 & 16 hrs... Plus many weekends and holidays.After reading all these posts about your poor people's plight, I realize the difference between the BEST and WORST job is the individual's attitude.  And that attitude spills over to EVERY other aspect in life.I too am guilty of complaining about stress, pay, missing out on so much of my kids' lives, etc.BUT... The bottom line is, even though life hasn't turned out like Our favorite TV shows...big house, easy living, etc, EACH of us are far more blessed the we realize.  Thank GOD we have jobs and are able to eat enough to keep our bodies fueled.  Thank GOD we have enough left over to have money to get on internet.  WOW!  Think of all those people who can't say either of those two things.GOD, forgive me for being so ungrateful!!!!
