All this interaction with people, especially when it might be confrontional, can wear introverts out!
Personally, I haven't found too many people very understanding except for other teachers.

I've noticed when doing searches that those seem to be the most common professions of single females..(at least in my age range)I can somewhat understand why there are plenty of single nurses on here (due to their often unusual hours of work) but what about all those teachers?
I do not like hearing the whines about the salaries, but I know it does discourage many wonderful would be teachers. I'm sure running after little kids is physically draining too.
The reality is that if anyone is saving up for their home or a fancy vacation or paying off a student loan, then a second job makes sense to meet their goal faster. I would think this is especially true of teachers in 20's and 30's that are just settling down in both profession and life. I know a friend that just graduated from the hospital unit clerk course (nowhere close to bein a nurse) and she tells everyone sge is a nurse. These are demanding careers, but there's not much authority.
Besides the extra planning and homework grading (which can take hours! Many decide with continung education requirement, why not just go on and get that advanced degree. Taking classes is going to take a sizeable amount of "free time" during the school year and summer.
RNs, RPNs, and LPNs are the only professions legally aloud to call themselves nurses. We offer more services and well-trained care then Care Aids (although Care Aids are the backbone of healthcare). I have been sittin at this damn desk for like 5 hours now and am slightly spacey. Truth is male nurses are in high demand since they can physically lift more, idea being they won't hurt themsleves as often since women can carry less weight (and end up carrying more then they can handle and end up with a back injury). For me to be fired based on either my profile or comments I post on an ADULT DATING Site is a bit ridiculous.
both areas require the individual to take a great deal of responsibility, but very little power and control.
the combination of stress, responsibility and powerlessness creates a great deal of tension that spills over into personal lives.
I hear this myth frequently that teachers are done when school lets out at 3 PM and of course they have nothing to do over the summer.
School duties usually will add extra time to the work day, so just because the kids leave at 3 PM, does not mean teachers do.
