I teach because I love it. There are many headaches, unmotivated students and those with poor self-esteem, parents with little to no expectations, etc. With so many negatives my motivation is to hear a student say, "Oooh I got it! or "That's easy, I thought it was difficult." My students see my teaching ability way more than my administrator or state representative.

Your in teaching to teach. Have that as the focus of being a teacher and employment looks after itself. Institutions that won't/can't recognise your value as a teacher to their organisation don't deserve you. There are plenty of others that will appreciate and recognise your value as a teacher who is there to teach.
