What do teachers feel when they see that one of their students is earning more than them?

Almost every single one of my students will earn more than me, once they graduate. I will be very happy for them. I will be even happier if they are happy in the job that they find or the business that they start.

Teaching is a very poor profession to choose if you want to make money. Since, I chose this profession, I don't put money very high on my priority list. So, in one sense I couldn't care less how much my students make. All I want for them is to be happy in what they do.

I like to blog about various topics ranging from education in IITs to social issues in India and US. All opinions and views presented here are my own and not of my employer.
