There are very few posters here. Who is lurking if anyone? Are teachers too busy to post? Are non-teachers lurking but not posting?

Take this poll please.

I'm an odd case for your poll.

I have a Ph. D. in Chemical Engineering. I spent 7 years working as an engineering consultant. Then I spent 4 years working in public schools -- dysfunctional would be a kind way to describe them. Now I am in my second year at one of the top private schools in Atlanta.

I believe my variety of experiences gives me a unique perspective on things. But I never stop listening to other teachers (and parents, students, and administrators) since you never know where the next great idea will come from.

Taught in a private (Assemblies of God) high school for 2 years; taught in a public high school for 1 year; swore I'd never set foot in a classroom again and did software development for 10+ years (which included adult education classes for some of our customers).

Put our kids in a parochial (Catholic) elementary school and had to volunteer; ended up as trampoline coach for our kids' tumbling & trampoline team--really enjoyed both of those.

In three weeks will be teaching a 30-minute daily remedial math group for about 10 middle-schoolers--volunteer. Still not sure I would consider teaching full-time--as a volunteer I have a lot more options.

I don't originate a lot of posts and only respond to ones I actually think I have something to contribute or have a strong opinion on.

I'm another odd case. I'm a software engineer working on educational technology; teachers are my customers.
