One of the hardest parts of being a teacher is that the work keeps coming and never stops coming. At a normal job, you clock in at 9 and leave at 5 without having to do extensive planning for days to come during the time you’re not in the office. When you’re a teacher, it’s a completely different story. There’s never time for not working. You have to grade papers, answer emails, create new assignments, work on lesson plans, meet with higher-ups, and that’s not to mention having to teach classes all day. There are not enough hours in the day for teachers to get what they need to do done, have a good work-life balance, and get enough sleep. Fools who point to summer vacation as proof that teachers have easy jobs are insolent fools who could never plan the next nine months of work at their jobs in a span of two months. Teachers work so hard and deserve the world.
