School is 8am-3:30. Oh but wait, my district expects sectionals so Iím teaching from 6:45-4:45. Gotta be at school earlier than the kids, so Iím at school around 6:15am, and if all I do is tidy up and check a couple emails, Iím out the door by 5:15. 11 hour minimum day.
But letís be real! How often do we have outside of school things? Beginner fittings, booster meetings, solo contest, region auditions, concerts..? Probably 2 weeks a month. So those weeks are 65-70 hours. Plus donít forget dealing with an angry parent, planning an event, etc... sometimes you have to work late to take care of those things. My 45 minute lunch/conference isnít enough time to do all those things.
That averages 55-65 hrs/week so letís call it 60. And within my district Iím seen as Ďlazyí because I leave when things arenít finished sometime, and I donít get to school at dawn.
Not ok. Not even a little bit.
Bye!!! I wonít miss it.
