"Myth #1: High school English teachers sit around all day reading and discussing great literature, and crafting Romeo and Juliet lesson plans. Truth #1: High school English teachers sit around all day reading Sarah, Felipe, and Nick's crappy essays. English teachers have no time to read, except in the summer. In fact, if you love reading, become a Math teacher." So true.
