We've set the kitchen at the island at the table and and they just and they and their teacher friends come over and they were just go off on the parent's apartment my mom was active in the teachers association. A kind so I and I learned all about the politics. And there's politics in every career via. We pitch. And and you know it you're getting a deal with politician India pressure and allow parents I don't know our parents really that bad we'll walk away. From a job that you went to school you. You wrapped up all these college loans and I'm gonna change careers because. The parent pressures to see much. I don't friend who went to school for ten years to be a teacher on and off of quote accidental rockers in New Jersey. Great English department graduate with an English degree I guess we're talking six figures in debt their rockers is would you yeah. Substituted five times because this is informing. Home that's all I was starting obtaining business. Really did to make money throughout going to school for the last and yours was construction in time now least you really legitimizing his painting business even out OK so we only substituted debt. For five times and he's out of cities like. Wasn't pleased is typically that it was it. He's a pit in the apparent that the politics what was it hot and peace with that. I don't know if you freaked out from just the corporate world from beyond being good people politically correct all the time yeah. This battle and our guys from New Jersey who run a central New Jersey so to turn a lottery exactly it is only substituting in the hunt our 100000 dollars and then he's he's saying he said he couldn't be happy entertaining every single thing now why. Now we got to chase and he knows what the grass big threats is greener for him on the other. How did tout it takes a special person to the other teacher hue gotta really just. Beloved kids and in want to see them succeed and be patient. It really you guys deserve your full week or day would have. I'd love to hear if if I don't know for everybody's school yet now what are your teacher used to be your whatever to do to buzz because. To me it seems like when you start off as a teacher. I you know he he start in that low capacity he also you can't get the cushy job in penfield where you wanna work. You have to go to where there's a job opening a lot of times that set one or more the more the more different call. You get to teach yet. And you know with the kids you have a flight from his kit you get thrown into you know like Citi Citi you know what grudge here maybe start in the city schools because. You can't just do like OK are gonna be teacher and a working for airport it doesn't work like that again you work where there's the jobs first you. You work your way through the ranks and that's like almost you gotta kind of pay your dues. No way kids don't need you more I've had friends who worked in a city and yet it's tough you're dealing with just. Or crazy crazy stories the other but those are the kids that really appreciate. What you offered to them as a teacher well regarding. When the veteran teachers do better in the city wouldn't wouldn't make sense to get to cushy easy when kids that are. No fighting in bringing knives not that doesn't happen apparently ignored me like if if entry level teachers went to a fair reporter penfield words cushy and quote easy and the veterans went to the city. That know how to deal with kids and on teach more experience that would make sense when that let's go to the calls to -- by us that how hard. I was even thinking I normally thinking elementary school when I guess I'm told it's rough no matter where you are my mother in law and Joseph smuggler who was a career teacher and she taught in the city schools her entire life. And and then now and after she retired she Bonser on in subject at all different you know school number that school number that and dom. She seemed to love it and she is the quintessential. Teacher.
