That's a lot of money for a teacher to have when all the politicians keep stumping to get them more.

Hey Maelstrom..ever consider that maybe the teacher got the money via an enheritence or perhaps was frugal and saved it ??
why don't you think about the fact that most public school teachers make less than hundreds of other jobs which are a lot less difficult and which have a lot fewer whiners complaining about their pay.
