Feels MUCH more "useful" and meaningful to me then any other job I've done (banker, loan officer, cashier, management, dancer etc).

sorry but isn't at least a little bit of credit due to the children themselves for the test results? i don't mean to take away from the time, work and devotion you put in but surely they are the ones who do the learning and do the tests?
