I happen to talk with guests at party function and said”we teachers actually spend summer vacation time catching up on all the work we couldn’t get to do during the #school year.”
The length of summer vacation vary from district to city.It also depend if school is public or private.
Some districts might have slightly shorter summers, while others may extend it.
During our casual conversation I told guest at party” trust me sir, even a few #weeks won’t make this vacation as glamorous as you seem to think.”
So, friends please before one think of #dismissing a teacher’s summer vacation as a #luxury, please take a moment to #appreciate the hard work and #dedication that goes into being an educator. Teachers may get a break, but our minds and hearts are constantly invested in the #betterment of our students. They make projects as teaching aids to teach difficult concepts like quadratic equations in subject #mathematics. They some time work on #research paper to be presented in educational conference.Some times these research paper require lot of data to be collected.To collect data and convert the same into #analytical equation require programing knowledge and so on. Learning new education tools(computer soft wares) to teach student takes time.Teachers use #summer vacation to learn educational tools.
Moral of Story–Good teachers minds and hearts are constantly invested in the betterment of their students.Summer vacation is best time for good teacher to go for professional development.
