Once in a while, like today, I hear someone say… “I wish I was a teacher so I could have the summer off.” Let me tell you, most teachers don’t have the summer off!
My hubs is a teacher, and while he may not be in the classroom with children right now, he IS in the classroom learning! He will have had a three-day span and a 5-day span this summer where he didn’t have professional development or a school meeting happening. And, mind you, he doesn’t get paid to do professional development hours, in fact, sometimes he PAYS to do them!
Just a short rant… do NOT think for one moment that all teachers do over the summer is lay by the pool and sip margaritas! They work hard, not just during the school year, but over summer “break” as well!
… Rant over… thank you for reading.
