From elsewhere on the web: one of the reasons why (some) people get into teaching.“Many people become teachers after they have failed or became [sic] tired or [OK, I make typos, too] their field of expertise. This happens when someone is laid off and cannot find employment elsewhere. It also occurs when men and women do not want to be as involved in a particular career field as they once were. They may be able to minimize their work hours and focus on other priorities. The pressure to deliver quality work can also be minimized. This is especially true for lawyers, artists and technology professionals.”
I swear, I didn’t make this up.
