So, we generally love teaching, kids, etc. and thus become teachers. We are known for working long, stressful hours with little pay, for putting our students first in our lives, and we are praised for it in the public mind. How common is this view of teachers? Is this a good way to view teachers? Do you ever run into problems where you aren't dropping everything for a student? Do people ever expect you to view your job as a martyr might? Do you even think you have overly long hours and pathetic pay?
