The teachers at my children's school doesn't get paid much. Their salary depends on how much tuition the school gets from the students. Since the population of their school is not that big, their salary is small compared to the teachers who teaches in public school which is funded by the government. That's one reason why the school ask parents and other contributors to do volunteer work because they can't afford to pay additional worker to do some work such as serving lunches to the children, that's what I do as a volunteer. They also do a lot of fund raising to help the school in buying equipment that is needed to teach the kids.
I really admire the teachers for their passion and dedication because despite the small salary, they still do their best to impart their knowledge to the kids. That's one of the many things I love about the school because the teachers really care. They know each child that goes there. In fact everybody knows everybody even the parents. It is a very close knit community.
To thank the teachers for their dedication, the school room Moms makes sure to collect some contributions from every parents to give the teacher some gift during Christmas or in their birthdays. It's our way of expressing our gratitude to them. Despite the small salary that the teachers get, they still manage to shell out their own money to get their students something during Christmas and other occasion. Here is the gift that my daughter got from her teacher.

My children love their school and their teachers. That's a main reason why we can't easily move. My husband has a great job opportunity from his company to work to England but he don't want to take it because he does not want our kids to experience a major change at a very young age. Now, he can go there and work but he chose not to because he does not want to be away from us.
How about you, how do you like your children's school?
