Teaching is a challenging job. And it was challenging before the global pandemic led to stay-at-home orders, hybrid learning, and Zoom classes. Now it's basically an Olympic sport (but less relaxing). Should we pay them a LOT more?! YES! But instead, we give them "Teacher Appreciation Week" once a year. LOL. We truly don't deserve teachers.
In addition to helping develop the minds of the younger generations, most teachers have developed two things: a thick skin, and a sense of humor (and maybe a drinking habit but hey, who am I to judge?!).
