Teachers Don't Work Hard Enough? Think Again!

TEACHERS DON'T WORK HARD ENOUGH?

THINK AGAIN!



THE ESTIMATED AVERAGE YEARLY SALARY

FOR A U.S. SCHOOL TEACHER IS

$49,000



ISN'T THIS TOO MUCK? MOST TEACHERS WORK

JUST 9 MONTHS A YEAR



LET'S DO SOME MATH:

THE REAL TEACHING DAY IS AROUND

12-16 HOURS/DAY



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
