There is a lot of personal rewards for being a teacher. I think the best thing is watching students develop over the school year. I also enjoy just being around the kids and listening to their fantasy filled ideas and dreams. Though the salary is not the greatest, I've found a way to survive a teacher's salary...using all the discounts that are available to us. I've been teaching 2 years and just found out about the many discounts that are out there for us. I have created a website that lists year-round discounts. Please check it out at http://www.totallyteacher.com. If you know of other discounts that aren't mentioned, please let me know so that I can upload them to the site. If you can think of new ones you'd like, let me know too.
