Tomorrow is a holiday and a day off for many teachers. A much needed day off. We need these days to rest and recharge. But, what I am going on about? Preaching to the choir, I’m sure.
There are still people that balk at teachers getting days off. Yes, we don’t have to go in to work during the summer months. Yes, holiday breaks for us are generally a bit longer than normal. But, what so many people consistently forget is that our job is intense. Very intense. Oops…preaching again.
So, my thought for the day goes something like this: Thanks go out to my predecessors that fought for these much needed days off. Without these rare days of recovery, our students (and health) would suffer. A rested teacher is a good teacher.
Unless they’re just a bad teacher.
