    =yeah to Jeff Foxworthy..

    .. and Jo you have my utter love , affection, and TOTAL understanding..DH Mark was a professor for years..almost SIL Steve IS a Professor, and DD Cynthia dated a teacher for a year..BOTH she and DD Jessica DO NOT suffer fools gladly and helped "correct" exams, and homework... and they would shriek ARE you KIDDING me??.. this is an *answer*.??.... blank papers turned in etc..it's unreal at family reunions for the ...... incredible amount of fodder that is generated!!.. and DS Vicki has 5 teachers at her family inlaws/outlaws reunions and we go to those too..

    =lolgang.. so we are so TOTALLY in your range of planning...*sigh*.. and you wonder why not ONE of my 5 kids would take the teachers exam course in college..:cool:....

    DS Stephen did "substitute teaching " for a job for his freshman year in college for extra money at his high school alma mater.. and that tore it.. he said NO way!!..

    lesson learned.at the total IGNORANCE of the parents!!
    as for my kids being teachers now....they'd sooner throw themselves under a bus...=eek...

    Thanks for sharing!!....=hugs Joanne

    :thumb Jo!

    This one's my favorite:
    DH changed careers a few years ago to become a high school teacher. He needs to be in by 7:00 and gets out at 3:00. My math tells me that this is the same amount of time as 9:00 to 5:00. He does admit the summers off are nice, but it's without pay and vacation costs jump considerably. Not that he complains about that, as he really enjoys his job.

    Ah Cruise Cutie,
    You are so right! DS #4 thought that he wanted to be an English Literature prof. We sent him to visit a friend who is a history prof. the summer between his junior and senior year of HS. When he came home, he said there is NO WAY! He went on to major in computer engineering and now makes more money than DH and I put together. :lol

    Being a teacher I've identified with many of those, especially at this time of year. LOL
