about this story

Introduction (Pic 1): All around the world, teachers work day in and day out to fit the needs of hundreds of students, every year.

Pic 2: They often face long commutes to work, as they can live far away from the town in which they teach. This consumes money to pay for gas and other motor vehicle-related expenses.

Pic 3: They also often use up more of their free time to help the school facilitate their after-school extracurricular activities. This can include things such as the band, drama program, and other clubs and activities.

Counterargument (Pic 4): However, many may argue that teachers understand the fact that teaching won't be a piece of cake, and that they already understand the risks before they go into the profession, so they shouldn't be paid more just for taking a job. However, in taking that job, teachers essentially take several jobs. They are an educator, a parent/authority figure for kids away from home, a person to go to for advice, an employee, and so much more.

Conclucion (Pic 5): So therefore, it is time that we begin giving teachers more "greenbacks" so that they can be paid for all of the responsibilities they tackle, as well as helping them pay off their life's regular expenses. It is beyond time to make sure that teaching is a well-paying and stable job for any and all people that decide to undertake it.
