All this led me to the following conclusions:
1. I should never, ever have spent four years (plus on extra semester) and $100K on an education in education.
2. I really do not like other people's children.
3. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.
I will address item #2 another time; my dearest know that their children do not fall into the category of 'other people's children'.
