Let me first thank you all for your insight into my becoming physics teacher thread. I'v been reading around such as aboutmyjob.com and so forth and the general impression I get is that teachers are fed up with the rudeness, apathecism and the babysitting effort. Is it really that bad or is it just a few horror stories really skewing the picture? Reading such stories on the internet is doing a good job of dampening my enthusiasm and introducing doubt into my decision. Give it to me straight, are they that bad?
