How long is your summer break? As in, how many free weekdays do you have during the summer? I always hear non-teachers talk about how it must be nice to get three months off in the summer and get paid in the summer for not working. (The summer pay is a whole other thread, so we will stick with days off.) I counted today. When I remove PD days and other work-required days, I have 36 weekdays of summer. And I’ll have to take a couple of those to get my room ready. Even more if I decide to paint my classroom.
