    Your judgements are getting tiresome. Evidently your life outside school is awesome and you feel no need to go beyond the school day for kids and since you weren't 'hired to be popular', just be comfortable with who you are as an educator and stop worrying about others.

    BUT your teaching can be awesome and still be popular. In my experience, the "popular" teachers are actually really good teachers.
    You just need to stop being so negative and seeing the bad in everything

    By "most" you are stating far more don't have a life after school than than those that do. What facts, research, data, surveys etc. which encompass a large sample of schools, in all grade levels, in all regions and all demographics can you present which support this?

    I go well beyond the school day. I also have a life outside of school: spending time with my husband traveling, performing with a couple of local music and theatre groups, organizing a meetup group for board gamers, and sitting on my couch clearing off the DVR. I also make a point to go to at least one of each sport at school and sponsor the drama club.

    Yep. You caught me! I am a happy DINK! I also won't be made to feel guilty about the life choices of those who have kids. I chose something different, and it works for me. If someone else chooses to have kids, then they have chosen something different, and I hope that choice works for them. I will say that almost all of our coaches have kids, our dance line sponsor is a single mom, and they find ways to make it work. Faculty members with kids bring their kids to games plays, etc. Or, they drop them off at dance class and catch a few innings of a softball game. It doesn't take much, and it doesn't have to interfere much with family time.

    Some will do that, but generally those who have active lives and other interests and/or kids, don't have the time or energy to devote to other people's kids, and they shouldn't do so. It's simply a fact.

    You and I work at very different schools and have a very different set of facts. We will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

    No: you don't get to order any A to Z member to stay out of a thread. Let me note that attempting to do so anyway goes far to prove czacza's allegation.
