    I’ve got one for you!
    This was a comment made by my sister when I told her that I needed to work in my room because I was running out of time before my first teacher institute day. I said, “You don’t realize how much I have to do.” She replied, “Well, you should’ve thought about that sooner.”

    Dear Lord,
    I am so sorry if this is true what you hear. I am a private tutor of languages and only sometimes I hear that I do not have a normal job, and many parents do complain about teachers. But damn. People have no respect. So I bless your work even more, I hope you thrive.

    I’m an assistant teacher and I work 12 months, no summer’s off. Government run schools is different from daycares and school/daycares…. We work 12 months, they have two months off. So not all teachers are that lucky.
