We have a couple of friends who are married. One is a teacher, and one is not. The non-teacher is always poking fun at the teacher – seemingly mostly in jest- saying that the teacher doesn’t work a lot, gets out of work so early, and doesn’t have to work in the summer- the teacher has it so…. Easy! Right? Wrong.
Just because teacher’s don’t spend their summers in the classroom doesn’t mean their job is easy by any stretch of the imagination. The handy infographic below offers a few statistics on teachers. While we know that there are many exceptions to the rule (on either end of the spectrum!), many of you will relate to the life of a teacher described here. So, just how many hours do teachers really work?
Is this accurate for you? Do you spend more or less time on the aforementioned activities? We’d love to hear from you!
