Teachers have it SO EASY!

Technorati Profile

"Teachers are very well paid and compensated relative to actual time spent in the classroom." You try teaching and grading papers and holding parent conferences at the same time. That's multi-tasking I'd lie to see. Now let's see you get it all done in 8 hours, so you can head for a brewski.

Summer the season and the portion of summer that teachers get are two entirely different animals. Add in in service training days, and summer can be less than 9 weeks long for a teacher. The unpaid overtime of grading papers and after school meetings more than makes up for any lost "summertime." Plus, to have a decent salary, worthy of other professionals, you need to teach. "Summer School." Whoopido!
