I am a teacher in the Kansas City School District. I have a full,
(Although short,) beard, and my hair is long enough to fall down to the
middle of my back.
As to pay, well, my mechanic makes far more than I do, but the
advantages of the job more than make up for that!
1: My "hobby" is a source of intrest to my school, and I am often
in garb and carrying my "toys" around with the blessings of my Principal.
2: I have access to every research source available on line, by
mail, and in any college. (Hey, they even put a high powered computer on
3: Much of my "hobby" is deductable, as I am using those things to
increase my effectiveness in the classroom.
4: My students find the arts I practice facinating, and want to
get involved in them, so I can work on some projects in my calssroom.
5: June, July, and August.
6: The local college has admitted that some of my work might be
used in a continuing class for my doctorate!
7: I get to give demos for my fellow teachers! (can we say 'time
off from work and get paid extra?')
8: Inservice days often find me demonstrating to my fellow
district art teachers, and net me a bit of extra cash.
I can't complain. Yeah, I could get more money, but my work day
ends at 3pm!
