I don’t have a car payment or any major car expenses.
I don’t go anywhere on the weekends or take a vacation.
I don’t go to the Doctor, Dentist or buy medicine.
I don’t celebrate any holidays, birthdays, weddings or baby showers.
I don’t eat out ever or entertain guests.
I don’t buy new clothes for me and my children.
I don’t have to pay for childcare, diapers or school supplies.
I don’t turn up the heat or turn down the AC.
I don’t mind working a second job and a summer job to make ends meet.
I don’t become a single parent raising children on my own without any other income.
(Oh, that is me!)
If I know that regardless of the money not made by a Teacher, my ultimate goal is to love, support, teach and give dreams to my students, THEN and only then is my Teacher’s salary enough.
