There is so much teacher bashing out there, I thought I should share this post about how generous teachers are. Anecdotally, I have know this for years. I know teachers who pay for children to attend field trips. I know teachers who buy clothes so everyone has a cubby with an extra set. I know teachers who buy school supplies for their classrooms. I know teachers who spend a LOT of their hard-earned paychecks on all sorts of miscellany for the children and families they serve.
They even pay for food for hungry children. Yep- teachers are generous.
