It is obvious from some of the postings on here that we don't. Students see that attitude from the public and bring it into the schools. I singled out David Beckham in my post, but I feel the same about all athletes and celebrities. I am not asking for millions, but it would be nice for teachers to make a salary that shows we are appreciated for what we do and to be able to work in facilities that aren't falling in around us and that aren't overcrowded. Let students and the rest of the public see teachers (firemen, police officers) celebrated in the public eye.
