“ Most teachers pay for their own graduate school and ongoing professional training, and over 92 percent buy supplies for their students out of their own pockets. But over the past few years, we’ve seen over 60 percent of teachers working second jobs, dining with their children at food banks, and even selling their blood to make ends meet. Examples of such financial stress and strain can be found in every state in the country; quality teachers are walking away from the profession, and salaries are part of the reason they leave.
Is this the way we want any of our teachers to live? Is this what we think will lead students to higher levels of achievement? ”
As a teacher who struggles with the stress and shame of a second job, I really feel this. I don’t want to be a millionaire, I just want to make enough to pay all of my bills and maybe be able to do something nice for myself every once in a while without having to feel guilty about it.(via edukaition)
How many of you have taken a second job? I worked in the newsroom and waited tables while I worked on my graduate degree.(via girlwithalessonplan)

I wrote an e-mail to Vince before we started shooting the final eight episodes—a plea for Jesse, a love letter. I never give my two cents when it comes to Breaking Bad, because why would I? I’m just the actor, and what they’re doing is perfect, you know? But I just felt like I would always regret it if I didn’t at least throw them a pitch on how I wanted Jesse to go out. So I gave a few different ideas of how I thought he would kill himself. I didn’t want anybody else taking his life. The letter was awful. It was very morbid, and I’m so happy they didn’t listen. I’d rather Jesse just kind of ride off into the sunset like he did.
