Teachers wake up early and usually get to school around 6 or 7 a.m. Though school may end around 3, they usually don't leave till 5 or 6 p.m. Grading hundreds of essays and papers are tough and extremely time consuming. Planning classes requires time. Weekly meetings with other teachers and administration requires time. Talking and helping students take up even more time. Some of my high school teachers would stay till midnight some nights to finish papers. Many teachers help with sports and clubs without pay.
Normal 5 to 9 jobs will usually not involve extra work outside the workplace.
I watched videos, and I had homework I graded myself. But I seriously believe that teachers do deserve more financial support. Crappy pay ends up with crappy teachers.
They're not doing the job for the pay; they're doing it because they love helping others
As for the OP, just don't wear the t-shirt and try not to make a big problem out of it. Try to toe the line and not give him any reason to trouble you. Some teachers are just dicks, but the best things to do is just to get by.
