This could be the song for all teachers, although most don't like it when it is said the reward is worth the low pay! It's a world of contradictions, right?

reward

I wish I had had this to share when talking with middle schoolers who were sure they were headed to fame (usually as the next Disney star) but didn't think at all about the work.

Re: reward

They also have a song called Integrity Blues which includes the lyrics:

It's all what you do when no one is there
It's all what you do when no one cares

(This song is on their album of the same title, Integrity Blues)
