School Teachers are Sanitation Workers too

We spend over a decade listening to them.  They teach us everything from basic mathematics and reading skills to complex chemical equations and historical event. They not only explain the world around us but they also the champion of garbage and recycling. Teachers and paraprofessionals are garbage men too. Did you realize that a good portion of their work is teaching future generations how to reduce, reuse, and recycle? Teachers these days have to make the most of every supply they have and even manage to find creative ways of reusing old supplies in creative ways. School teachers use everything from bottle caps to teach basic principles from counting to making artistic creations out of toilet paper rolls. Their ability to salvage item that would normally be tossed out in every other household and use them as instruments of learning is awe-inspiring.
