Even though each child had a parent present ostensibly to keep everything under control, the energy and noise levels were incredibly high. Frustratingly high, in fact. Somehow, though, the preschool teachers managed to enforce order and, when warranted, encourage silence with a minimum of fuss. It was amazing.
They have skill sets I don't possess. It would be difficult for me to keep that number of children from accidentally maiming themselves each day.
Power and respect to them. They should be paid more highly.
