OK - this is not quite what your looking for but still.
I did go from Kindergarten to school 8 years ago. And - even thogh I love my work I have some ideas that most teachers hate to hear:
A) We have too much time off.
B) I make too much money !
Naturally - this is stirring up a hornets nest - but I'll explain these attitudes on my behalf.
A) Coming from a lifetime of 07.00 to 17.00 days (They often were that long )
I find that : The small environment,the staff,the children were easier to relate to than 1000 students. And the pace was slower,the demands fewer etc.
B) Working as I did in kindergarten I made 2\3 of what I do today - and I did find the work just as important.- I did work 600 hours longer pr. year (48 weeks)
Still - I have settled down today - and my last 10 years will be spent as a firstgrade-teacher and webmaster.
But I DO miss kindergarten. Mainly the freedom to stay outdoors as Llong as I wanted.
