My wife is a teacher's aide. Sort of an assistant teacher, without the responsibility of lesson planning. She has a Bachelor's degree in math, and an Associate's degree in chemistry. She has had, but let lapse, a full teacher's certification, which is required in NYS to teach.
She works for the same school district that my son attends. The reason she works there is to get the very generous benefits package, including health, dental and vision care insurance.

She makes less than burger flippers in other parts of the state, because of misguided minimum wage laws.

Having lived in NYC for a few years, you should have known that a big-city person's first reaction to compliments or unnecessary niceness is "Oh ****. Where's my wallet?" Once one's money is not in question, then general suspicion of motives, followed by unease and then fear - "Maybe I can offer him something to go away? Maybe he's a dangerous psycho."
