I'm an art teacher. I spend my days with dozens of 14-year-olds who are all smarter than me (at least that's their opinion). But fortunately, those days aren't during June, July, and August.

I'm an I/T guy by trade. Worked 24 years for Universal Entertainment's North American manufacturing division, making music CD's and DVD's, as the manager of Application Development. But then we were bought by Sony, and they closed our facility because they already had their own manufacturing. So I took a part-time side business that my wife and I had, and we turned it into a full time operation. I am now co-owner (with my wife) of the The Palmetto Company of the Carolinas. We are an environmental compliance company. In a nutshell, we monitor underground fuel storage tanks for leaks, and do required testing to make sure they stay in state and federal compliance. In other words, we keep them out of trouble...lol....

(I did do a search for this topic, couldn't find any evidence that this subject has come up before; if it has point me in the right direction!)

Myself, I've worked for the same company for 27 years - a fossil fueled (coal) power generation station. Worked rotating shifts for most of those years as a control room operator. Last July I took the salaried position of Database Coordinator; straight days, weekends & holidays off.

Not sure if I responded to this or not. I am on this site so much I lose track. I am a reading teacher for 1st and 2nd grade students in a nearby public school. I work with students who are having difficulty with early reading and writing skills. It's the best job I could ever imagine. It's rewarding, never repetitive, and the time off gives me a lot of time to spend with my daughter (as well as play with my smoker). My wife is incredibly bitter about all the time off haha. Disclaimer: Don't hold me to proper grammar and usage on this site just because of my profession. I'm not on the clock haha.
