Quick Post on Teaching :)

I figured something out very quickly.

In a conversation I once had, someone had mentioned “must be nice having the summers off!” And yes, I could sense a little jealousy and contempt rising from his voice. Which is fine. I’m sort of used to it by now.

However, I usually respond with “I make sure to earn my break during the year.”

And I truly mean that.

Teachers usually teach 180 days in the year (at least in my district), not counting any ESY (Summer School), classes, or further training you might attend. This doesn’t include the teachers who work moonlight jobs as well (which I don’t).  Anyway, with the hours I worked during the school year, which includes school functions, tutoring, academic camps and whatnot, I extrapolated the time across the whole year (without any breaks) and still manage to work over 40 hours a week (41.5 to be exact).

Just a little something I thought about.  Which also made me think, “seriously, I need a wee bit of a life during the school year.”
