What is the life of a teacher like? Do these educationalists constantly grade skyscraper piles of exams and other student work while creating lesson plans and review packets for the upcoming school days, or do they enjoy leisure activities? Do they shop for food and clothes at common locations? Is teaching the sole purpose of their lives, or do they own various other capacities?
