Maybe you don't realize but many places, your payment simply goes to keep the lights on and the doors open. The teacher gets no compensation. This is not their profession or a job, yet they are willing devote a lot time, passion, and their own money to it.

Also, I have never had anyone bow to me that I am not bowing back just as deeply to them.
