You try not to let it get out of hand, but if I was out to get rich(er than I would be otherwise) I would have stayed in the private sector running my own business(es.) I teach because I am good at it, I have always wanted to do it, and because it has to be done, and done effectively. If not by me, by who? There are times you just have to suck it up and take one for the team. I don't get trinkets so other people's kids learn. That's a pretty good trade-off in my book.
