It Could Be Worse!

I try to tell myself this every time I open my mouth to complain about school.  I'm not always successful.  In fact, I'm rarely successful.  Complaining is easy (and free!)

But a story like this is a good wakeup call.  I really do have a cushy job.  My biggest class at the private school where I teach has been 19, and that seemed HUGE.  My smallest class was 4, which dropped down to 3 later.  Most of my classes are around a dozen.  Still, I fret about giving each student enough attention.  I can't imagine what I would do with 30 or 40 kids!  Those teachers should be canonized.
