Also, not every teacher is prepared to play the role of Michelle Pfeifer in Dangerous Minds. I know that's a bit of an exaggeration but I think you get the point.
I am well aware about buying supplies. However, there are many ways to assist this problem, if even encountered. Grant writing, fund raising and donations come to mind.
I realize that not everyone is cut out to be in the worst of the worst schools but I think all teachers should want to be challenged, to want to help and to not just limit themselves to only "great schools."
