    I was just wondering how many educators post to this site. I have been teaching math for about 23 years in public schools. Most of that time has been working with 16 to 18 year olds.

    Any other teachers here?

    Hopefully other actual teachers will show. So far all I have seen is ridicule at this site when I mention I am a teacher.

    I don't think you get ridiculed because you are a Teacher, I think it has more to do with how you put yourself across to others. I believe Teachers have among the hardest jobs there is and should be paid more than they make.

    Sure, but still no respect for being a teacher. Are you willing to admit that?

    Again, who do you feel has ridiculed you. You know if you are going to dish it out you will get it back no matter what your profession happens to be. No one gets special treatment because of who they are or what they do in the real world.

    You want to be tough skinned if you are going to play in the forums the Debate forum can be especially a bad place to go if you are not thick skinned or have your facts straight.

    You expect respect because of your profession?

    Anyone paying attention would know I am a qualified teacher and maths graduate.
    Which is why I am incredulous of your supposed qualifications.

    Some claim that teachers are to be respected. Maybe you disagree.
