it is stressful. Imagine having to spend your day having to manage 30 employees who don't want to be there and need constant supervsion and reminders to get their work done. You are short of classroon supplies to make the classroom run and you are told there is no money so you pay for them yourself out of your own pocket. You spend the "so called" vacation days doing prep work to satisfy new inititives and changes in the subject matter. You often skip lunch because students need renmedial help and just gobble down a sandwich when you get a chance. You are told that you have to keep about 150 computers from 2002 running. And finally, you get demonized in the media as being the enemy in the budget crisis even though you have spent the last three years on salary freeze.
