Of course you're entitled to your opinion. I'm just pointing out the fact that I've never heard a good teacher say they were overpaid.
I've never heard a good CEO say they were overpaid, but others might disagree for a variety of reasons. My own skill or lack thereof has not one thing to do with it, so drop the ad hominems.
Hey man, you're the one who brought up "I was a teacher/admin, so I'm qualified to speak on how hard they work." Don't be surprised if people want to take irrelevant stabs at your irrelevant support for your argument.
