One of the hardest things for me was going from an hourly salary where you're paid for every second worked to salary where you make even less but then don't get paid any extra for the after-school staff meetings, Parent-teacher conferences, late field trips, etc. Also, I thought certain doctors were bad about looking down on nurses but was very surprised to find teachers that do esp when most of them went to school the same amount of time! They could care less if I get a lunch break, just as long as little Bobby gets his pants changed! Anyone else find certain aspects hard to get used to? (Although I found snow days very easy to get used to!
