My youngest girl is a grade school teacher , too , Bruce , her day starts at 5:00 AM every day , ends at about 10:00 Pm every night .She is also a mother , takes care of her little girl , her son , gets everybody up and going every day . She worked herself to near exhaustion , to get herself thru teacher's college , and worked three part time jobs to pay down her school debt , which was almost 20 K by the time she graduated . And she is also still active in local sports events , plays soccer and rugby . And she also is an active member in her church , and never complains about her work load . Don't tell me that teachers have it easy , I've seen the difference , and I often shake my head and wonder how she does it all , and still keeps it all together .
