What is this summer you speak of?

You know, when you're a teacher, the one thing you look forward to is having your summers off. Some even use it as a justification for the absurdly low pay for doing a job that is such a service while professional athletes and their ilk get paid multi million dollar contracts...and some of them don't do anything but sit on the bench the entire season!!!

Anyway, here I am all ready for my summer, and then I get the e-mail that we are going to be having weekly meeting throughout June. Ugh!

You may say what about July and August, right? Well, we start band camp after the 4th (every tue/thur until the 23rd when it actually starts. Camp ends Aug 4, the following week is teacher in-service week, with school starting on the 13th (what a birthday present, huh?). So, yeah, there is no summer break for me. Oh well, such is life.

At least I'll be making some money during some of these extra days...not the band camp, but that's a topic for another post.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
