What would we be without teachers?

The average K-12 teacher's salary annually is around $40,000-$45,000. While the average NFL player's is in the millions, the average actor, doctor, lawyer, etc. are by far much more than any K-12 school teacher. Why is this? Of course entertainment is very inportant to the average american life but what would any doctor, lawyer, actor, sports player, etc. be without teachers. If you think from this point of view, you wonder, why is it then, that teachers are paid less then all of these careers?Teachers(other than parents/gaurdians) make the children of America, even more so of the world, who they are to become. They teach children what they need to know to be successful in the future.
People always go on to say how the children of the world are our future. But without teachers how could this be? Where would we be without teachers. How would we have scientists, doctors, lawyers, firefighters, sports players, etc. in any form? Men and women of today should take a stand and make it so that teachers of America and around the world should be of higher praise and salary.
Note: That i do understand that college teachers should be paid more also. This post was just more directed to K-12 teachers.


  1. I agree that a teacher is the least praised person around. You say upfront you have faith, I think thats cool. so I say I do not. that being out of the way. It saddens me to watch a football player, I dont watch that but Point is, like you said these guys get paid millions. touchdown.. they thank god. the couches? the schools they learned at and became skilled at? millions in the bank, and the schools they went to can't get the books they need.. You asked about caring for someone so much. My answer is and their name is the human race. anyways I think your page is nice.

  2. I enjoyed your post. The funny thing about teachers is that people love them or hate them, but mostly they look down on them. Teachers, we are told, are those who can't succeed in real life so they teach others how not to succeed, too.
    If you've ever tried to teach someone, you know how very hard it can be. Most teachers do an excellent job with what they have.
    Thanks for the post. Keep up the good work.

  3. Interesting insight! We all should be proud of teachers .They are the ones who shaped and moulded us into the learned adult we have become today.They deserve all the praise ,encouragement and of course higher wages!
