To the Editors:
Hey, young America: What do you want to be when you grow up? How about being a teacher [June 16]? After a B.S., an M.S. and 20 years' experience, you can make $18,000 a year, teach five classes a day, grade homework for 150 students at night, do bus and early-morning duty and attend extracurricular events after school. Plus you get to read, at least once a month, articles telling you how incompetent you are and what a lousy job you are doing.
Sounds terrific, doesn't it? Somehow, though, it is satisfying and it is rewarding.
