Cynthia: When I was younger, a teacher was certainly one of the things I could envision myself doing. But after having children of my own and going into my daughter's various classrooms and observing teachers, that is a job I could never do. That's got to be the hardest job in the world. As a parent, you need incredible patience, but when you're dealing with a classroom of 20 to 25 kids-it seems impossible. I think teachers are amazing.
