But teachers in mainstream schools are sure stressed out with both teaching and managing CCAs. :(
Definitely overworked and underpaid, but not "poorly paid".
At least count your blessings you still have a job? :)

If they are overworked and don't get paid a reasonably salary when compared with their peers in other industries, then they are poorly paid. In my book poorly paid and underpaid are one and the same.

For me, poorly paid = paid not enough for basic living needs. Underpaid = paid less than one should be for the work performed.
