I saw myself in checkered lands, I even dreamt I was the knight in command (Split Enz)

The starting off point for this post is a question from Seth Godin - What did you expect?

If you open a roadside motel, expect that tired and demanding budget travelers will arrive.

If you run a fancy restaurant, don’t be surprised if people will angle and cajole and lie to get a ‘better’ table. 
If you’re a mental health professional, expect that the people you encounter will have issues with their mental health. 

In the case of teaching - if you are a teacher, expect issues with students' behaviour and engagement, parents of students who run the continuum from disinterest to extreme keen interest, other teachers experiencing a range of adult pressures and bosses you need to be accountable to.

It all goes with the territory.
