I wish someone would tell me one day

Why we pay the salaries we pay.

The sports players and models are millionaires

Our teachers and child abuse investigators are practically on welfare!

It seems the more significant your work is- the less you make,

Is it just me or is this a mistake?

Well heads up- for GOD knows what you do,

and there's a reward waiting just for you!

Oooo good poem! I hate how athletes and moviestars get paid so much and they waste it all on giant houses and pools when there's so many people out there who could use the money.

Preschool teacher here. It is so frustrating how little we make and how much we do to enhance the lives of children... Anyway, well done. Just wish there was something we could do about the mix up in who deserves the money!!!

A preschool teacher has such a big impact on kids! You should be making millions! I will still remember my preschool teacher for as long as I live. But there's always something you can do--write letters to your senators (I've done this and most of them write back) or you can start a petition or a group with other teachers.

Thanks Amanda! You are awesome. That's great that you actually took the time to write to them... I don't know about this preschool though. As much as I love the kids, and the parents love me, and as much as I enjoy the "Creative Curriculum," a different type of teaching than we were brought up on, I don't think I can do this forever! But I suppose in the meantime, while I am there, I can look into it. I don't know much about that sort of thing, but I can do some research. Thanks!
