It's hilarious.... if you ask one teacher to help out another new teacher, you have to pay the teacher $700 to do it. Typical union vermin... have to pay them to lift a finger. "It's all about the kids !!"

@Crestor perhaps you should become a day to day substitute and see what it is like. You know walk in the shoes of another for the day. My guess based upon your prior writings you believe you have the abilities. So step up and show us what teaching is all about. Let us know what grade you end up at so we can evaluate your performance.

As a professional, I've mentored several young professionals and several other non-professional but highly skilled workers. I never expected, nor did I receive extra pay for that. It's just something you do to pass on the wisdom.
