This job is tops in both the power and the glory departments. You're not going to look back on your life like some sports agent and wonder what the hell you ever really did with your life. There is nothing so rewarding as passing on your knowledge and wisdom to the next generation. And if there's stuff you don't know and they ask you questions about it, just make things up. Like they're ever going to doubt you. That is the beauty of being a teacher.
