Thank you all for supporting teachers. I also get upset with those who say "teachers are OK, but the money-grabbing unions ........! Guess what, folks, we are the union. And we need to stick together as much or more as at any time in memory.
the priorities of this nation are out of order...always have been and is getting worse...I have always said that teachers and first responders should be paid the most because their value is inmeasurable...but hey, what do I know? SMH

I work for the retirement system (well, I retired from it but have been back part-time) in Wisconsin and I see the earnings of teachers across the state as part of my job, and I have good friends who are teachers. There is no way they are over-compensated for the job they do. I know I'm preaching to the choir. How can we not value the people who we expect to educate and care for our children? And nuns. Nobody works harder than those women. I went to Catholic schools and sure, some of them were unhappy and mean. Some of every group is unhappy and mean. But the ones I remember, and the sisters I still know today, have shaped my life in ways I don't even realize, and ways no priest ever did.
