There is currently an article on Yahoo outlining the top ten worst-paying college degrees. I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone that Elementary Education is on the list. Number two, in fact. So if there is anyone out there who believed Lewis and I are only going to teach for the money, you can now lay your doubts at rest. There is now empirical evidence to suggest that fiscally, we are crazy people for going into this career field.
You think we're poor now as we barely scrape by each month between rent and groceries - ha! Just wait til we have younglings and a mortgage!
But dagnabit, we're going to be happy. Cause teaching is fun and we like it.
