day 207…

Summer holidays.  It is undoubtedly one of the best things about being a teacher.  Six weeks of holiday…Sephi still in nursery Mon-Weds…lots of time to get things done…lots of time just to relax with a good book.

I’m aware that it’s one of the things people have a little go at teachers about, though.  6 weeks of additional childcare responsibilities.  13 weeks of holidays for teachers…isn’t it all a bit…excessive?

I can’t really comment other than to say that this is the hardest I’ve ever worked in my life and varied careers that I’ve had.  It isn’t a 9-5 day (or 9.05 to 15.10 even).  Hours of prep, marking, meetings, parents and open evenings, extracurricular activity.

So, I’ll just enjoy it…and try to be a good friend to those who don’t have it so good over the summer.
