:wow:I feel as though I wrote this! I get asked the EXACT same thing! Someone once told me my talent was being "wasted" being a kindergarten teacher!!! REALLY!? I mean, you want someone who isn't smart teaching!? Come on people!!! Thankfully, my dad, an intelligent man and EXCELLENT award winning teacher (had to brag) was very proud of me for choosing the profession and backed me up every step of the way! I agree!!! We HAVE to attract the best and brightest! After all, I want the best and brightest to teach my children...don't you?!
