TEACHERS DON'T WORK HARD ENOUGH?
THE ESTIMATED AVERAGE YEARLY SALARY
FOR A U.S. SCHOOL TEACHER IS
ISN'T THIS TOO MUCK? MOST TEACHERS WORK
JUST 9 MONTHS A YEAR
LET'S DO SOME MATH:
THE REAL TEACHING DAY IS AROUND
8 HOURS standard teaching day (full time)
1 HOUR come before school or stay after school to offer extra help to those who need it
3-5 HOURS day by day planning, grading, answering emails, making home phone calls, making home visits, attending meetings required by the school district, holding teacher-parent conferences, etc.
If you're a teacher, you are a mom (or dad), a disciplinarian, nurse, comforter, protector, and safety net among many other things every day.
BUT HEY, IT'S STILL 9 MONTHS A YEAR, RIGHT? WRONG!
HERE'S WHAT TEACHERS DO IN SUMMER:
CONTINUING EDUCATION: 2-4 WEEKS
Most teachers take workshops during the summers to keep up with the latest research in their field.
PLANNING CURRICULUM: 3 WEEKS
Planning a curriculum is a complex skill, just like the financial planning of an organization.
GETTING READY FOR WORK: 4 WEEKS
Most teachers need to show up 1 month before school starts to participate in meetings, trainings, etc.
TEACHERS ARE GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF YOUR CHILDREN
