Teachers deserve more money

My mother is a teacher and she works so hard, she sometimes is up all night doing things for her job. She puts up with all of the kids in her classroom every day. And for what? A lousy pay that she deserves more of.

Teachers deserve more money in their paycheck every week. I think that if taxes went up 1 percent (only 1 percent) that we would have enough money to pay our hard working teachers. They work so hard and it would be disastrous if they all went on strike or quit their jobs.
