We are a family of teachers. My mom was an English teacher. My sister is a special ed. teacher. I taught character education to high school students. My niece teaches English at the college level. A nephew teaches in conjunction with earning his PhD. My cousin taught math for 25 years.
Our daughter, my favorite teacher, teaches chemistry. She has also taught theology, physics, and forensics. (Just don't ask her to crochet you a SOCK.)

We are a family of teachers. Our daughter remarked recently, "That's why our family never has any any money."
I can't argue that. But, hey, we're impacting young minds and hoping to make a difference in the world. At least, that's what we feel in our hearts. For most teachers, that passion somewhat boosts the lowly paycheck.
As for the Kobe Bryants and the LeBron James', who make millions for bouncing a ball - lest we forget - someone taught them how to play.
