I am from the Czech Republic (we are in Central Europe). My age is 32 and I am a teacher at school. I teach math and sciences, but salary in our country is not as high as I wish, so I am making some extra money as a housekeeper in the house I live in. I like both my jobs, I care for the house 2 years and I don´t feel ashamed that instead of teaching I also clean the floor. I allways say that not many buildings have housekeeper who has absolved two universities. I find your website interesting, I have already tried some tips I found there. Please excuse my English. I have been in United States with my wife for 4 months and we liked it there. But please don´t think that we live in jungle here in Czech Rep. and have hardly something to eat. The life has changed in recent years a lot here and differencies are slowly disappearing. The school I teach in resembles to american schools (only my salary not). Also my housekeeping equipment is comparable with american. As I see in your forum, the problems of custodians are the same. I can see it also from teachers point of view and I must say that it is not easy to make children to clean their mess in the classroom - they allways say: That is the work of custodian!
With best wishes, Radek
