Steve I suppose that would determine what kind of teacher you were, four of 
my guys teach in the school system in California and they make about $25.00 an 
hour and put in 8 hour days but do have health insurance and benefits.

   Some teachers in certain fields make more I am certain but most of the 
ones I know after having been in the teachers union for many years don't make 
anything close to $100,000.00 a year, at least in California where I think the 
average is probably closer to $35,000.00 at least according to my sister in law 
who has been one for over 30 years.

I also think that the Ladies who work the oldest profession should be allowed 
into the Teachers Union, after all Don't they Teach?  And if you don't get it 
right the teachers make you do it over and over and over again.  I love 
teachers don't you?  Some of them make $100,000.00 a year, which if broken down by 
the hour is pretty good earnings even if they don't get any respect.
