Thank you, everyone, for your well wishes for hubby's recovery.
I'm not sure if it was my homemade noodle soup that was the cure,
but just in case, here is my recipe.
OK, I'm not complaining...I'm just saying...
If you think that teachers are spending their holiday break sitting on the couch,
eating bon bons, watching soap operas, and shopping on-line...think again.
Remember, the school term ended on December 23rd.
And in class, we were not all watching A Christmas Story.
We were finishing strong.
End of course exams were administered and final projects were due.
Most teachers spend the week between Christmas and New Years
correcting all of those assignments.
Plus, not to mention all of the
"this assignment is missing,
can I still hand it in?" work that needs to be corrected.
Teachers across the country are figuring grades from the first semester...
and preparing lessons to meet a new group of students on Monday, January 5th.
But like I said, I am not complaining.
We all knew what we were signing up for when we took the job.
We teachers went into education because we love kids
and we want to make a difference.
p.s. I do not suggest making the comment
"it must be nice to have the time off"
to a teacher.
Their time has been more flexible,
but they haven't had it "off".
