Good for you!  Teachers deserve to have the summer off 🙂  (I am a teacher!)  But seriously, this is your time to do the things that you don’t get to do during the school year.

I guess my response would be “I’m jealous!”. As a single parent, before I met DH, I never had the luxury of saying I don’t feel like working. My job provided luxuries like food, clothing and a roof over our head.

Enjoy your time off.

coffeedrinker:  Good for you! Fellow teacher here who is enjoying my first summer off in a very, very long time. No working as a server and hating people, no more school. I’m taking this summer to relax, recoup from a stressful school year, and gear up to be in full swing in less than a month. Sometimes, you just need a break and one of the benefits of this career is you can let yourself have one if you need it.

coffeedrinker:  Good for you.  I could never work in the service industry again — I quit that in 2005 and haven’t even considered going back.  No way no how.  So enjoy the rest of the summer — we go back for in-service on the 19th, so it’s like…basically tomorrow.  

 

Also…teachers work VERY hard during the school year for far less pay than those with similar professional level jobs.  The bitterness expressed by some posters in this thread and in others is unnecessary — we know how you feel because we hear it over and over and over.

I think teachers should have the summer off. Teachers do not get paid enough, and time off is a replacement benefit to me. I will never understand how people who can entertain by singing, dancing around, and pretending to be someone that they are not is compensated WAY more than those who save lives and teach our childrend and other things that actually matter!

peachacid:  I hear you. It was a long road of waiting tables, bartending, and answering phones at a call center for a huge company before my teaching job. Teaching is draining during the school year And teachers need that break. Summer is going by so quickly!

Nice! I’m a teacher who sort of took the summer off… I just started doing 3 weeks of summer school. It sounds like your bartending job was way too demanding! I’m glad you get a chance to recuperate before the busy year ahead!

coffeedrinker:  

Welcome! It is wonderful! This is the first summer I’ve taken off, and I’m LOVING it! It’s also allowed me to plan the wedding, I feel a lot less stressed because of the time I have.

Enjoy the rest of your summer! 🙂

peachacid:  It really has flown by : ( I remember in June I was thinking, “Oh, July 21st is SO far away! I have so much time before summer school!” and then I had 2 weeks of prof. dev. and a quick trip home and then, BOOM! Summer school. Now I have two weeks left, one more week off, and then back to school… yikes!
