I was immediately intrigued.
"I could do that" I thought.
But then my mind started going over different scenarios of how stress might factor into that job.
Sad/Bad kids, Nosy/Gossipy co-workers, Belligerent/Abusive parents, Horrible boss, Sucky pay...
Oh man oh man.... doesn't sound so good anymore, does it?
I mean, out of all the important jobs there is to be had, being a teacher is one of the top most important. Everyone needs a teacher. Teachers are a necessity in this society.
Why then do they get paid the least amount of money??
Well, even though it would be a considerable drop in pay that I am used to, I am still considering it.
I may have to get a night job stripping or something (LOL - you've heard of teachers who do that right?)...
No, but really, I'd have to consider my financial situation, and mental situation, before delving into a career as thankless as a school counselor.
