Look, Im pretty sure that there isnt a job that people will not say isnt harder than a school teacher. Last year I worked 16 hours a day for 89 days straight completing five projects on contracts totaling close to twenty million dollars. I was responsible for the work of at least sixty people. On a couple of phases the work was so specific that the amount of mistakes were just astounding. I probably hired and fired twenty people in those three months. At the last minute I had to learn an entire new field of work which required about 250 hours of serious book study. So, you know I fit that in in my spare time at night. Then i had to teach a team of five to do the new thing that learned on the fly. Im not saying that teaching a classroom of 30 kids a subject that I studied for three to five years for seven hours a day isnt challenging, but you dont have many 36 hour days in the public school teacher game.
Oh, yea, and I home school my kids.
