My summers

There are a lot of teachers in my family so I don't get this argument from them, but I do get it from strangers. What I usually do is explain that I am contracted for ten months of employment with my pay being spread over twelve months. I say that if it was not spread out I would not get paid for two months. I can't say that I pay for my own training, because my district pays for the PD I receive. I can't say I spend countless hours getting my room ready for the new year because I choose not to. I don't spend a great many hours working in my room over the summer. I'm not expected to buy supplies, I haven't done that in about ten years. If parents don't supply it, the school does.
I do tell people if they want summers off and breaks throughout the year to become a teacher.
