You must know, in your heart of hearts, that being in the same room as 30 pubescent kids all day and having to deal with all their baggage is a mile away from working in FE.
After teaching in secondary schools for 20 years, I was totally spent. My God, what a delight it was to enter the world of almost-adults. I was very happy to take the 10 per cent pay drop!
