Erin, and all the other public school teachers in America, goes through hell and back every single day in order to enrich the lives of America’s future. She puts up with more bullshit than any one human should have to. Erin does so for a pittance of a salary, no thanks from parents, and often times without the support of her administration.
My mother and sister are both teachers, and this is spot-on.
It’s an incredibly difficult, underpaid, underappreciated, yet vitally important job that everyone — parents, administrators, the government — thinks they could do better than the people who actually do it.
