Clip to ScrapBook #6

I get people who ask me what I do during the summer a lot. I always teach summer school, so that shuts them up pretty quickly. I also explain the whole getting my ten months of pay spread out over 12 months thing.

I have also had people ask me how many hours my "required day" is- I get the feeling they're expecting it to be short, because they think it's the same as student hours. I even hear someone on the news once refer to teaching as "part time" because the teachers "get out at 2:30." They're always shocked when I say that my contract hours are 8 hours per day-at the minimum I am required to stay at school for 8 hours per day.
