Well if you were anywhere around Facebook last week you saw that it was Teacher Appreciation Week. There were so many posts about influential teachers from elementary school to high school. For a job that has such “little” rewards there really are incredible perks. First of all summer. Do I have to say anything else? Summer’s are awesome. Teachers love them more than students I assure you. Really all holidays are perks. Whenever kids are out, you are out. But with the holidays and all the days off there are big time downfalls. Any teacher will tell you that being at school is way easier than being out of school for a sick day or a personal day. It is so hard to describe on a piece of paper given to a sub (that might not be read at all) all the tiny intricacies of my daily routine as a teacher. There is a certain way I set up my classroom, distribute papers, talk to a certain student in a certain way, look out for cheating, and so many other small, minute things that I could fill a book of instructions for just one day.
