YEAH, BUT THERE'S NO PLACE TO HANG YOUR DILBERT CARTOONS

Another career changer, North Carolina writing teacher Waterfall, points out what she wryly calls "another teaching 'plus'":

On days like today, when I'm really tired and my sinuses are acting up and my patience is short, I tend to shuffle off into my own little dark corner of the world and feel sorry for myself. In Cubicle Land, it was easy to do this. I would wallow in my depressing little stew for days on end, feeling miserable and hating my life.
When you're teaching school, it's next to impossible to behave in such a self-absorbed way.
This is a good thing.

What kind of comment is that? Teachers make a world of a difference and are expected day in and day out to be a role model. A role model of patience and understanding and compassion and willingness to be there for whatever the student needs or is struggling with. This is despite what the teacher feels personally or is dealing with for that particular day. The teacher is forced to act like the day is just another perfect day for learning.
I do not see this comment as griping. It shows a teacher who cares for the students and will put his or her problems aside to ensure the best education and best school experience for the children and students.
