For those of our subscribers who are classroom teachers come these words of wisdom from a senior faculty member to his son who is just beginning his career: "no matter how well you teach, you could always do it better or devote more time and energy to it. It will suck you dry. … You have to establish over time how much time you can give it, do a decent job with it, but save time for yourself.
"It will get easier, and one lesson you need to learn as early as you can is this — make it fun. Make it fun for you as well as for them."
