I've always thought that the best revenge was to be more Conservative than your parents. Kinda like Michael J. Fox in that old TV show.
In my case the college where I teach is populated by students who often are the first in their family to attend college. That makes it a serious business. Combined with the fact that it is an extremely expensive and specialized private college, it seems that they take it very, very seriously.
Oh, a banana peel or a little bud probably slips through the cracks...
All in all, very career focused.
Keep up the great, rewarding work teacher.
What subject do you teach?
I am in my first year teaching TV production and speech in middle school. It is awful...the discipline issues. I hope I get it figured out; if not, I can’t do it next year!
I might get my doctorate in history and teach college then.
