Competent teachers, not even great teachers need to work all the time to keep up (including planning and professional development in the summer).
Oh ****, the burden of working in the summer. Such ****ing warriors. I am glad I get all summer off and don't have to endure the hardships of being teacher. The rest of us just sit around throwing feces at the wall, frittering away our summers.
They're tired? Welcome to the ****ing club. In August I get to plod the streets of downtown DC in a wool suit, toting around a quart of ball gravy in my hairy ass crack. The highlight of the 12-15 hour day is getting into my office, shutting the windows and shades, dropping trou, and dangling my sack and gooch in front of the AC. But yeah, me and teachers; the only people in America who work during the summer.
“You may think RaiderH8r is just a thinker. But I’m not just a thinker. I’m a doer. Every day I go out there, and rev that engine, fire it up, grab a hold of that line between speed and chaos, and wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And when the fear rises up in my belly, I use it. Fear is powerful, because it’s been there for billions of years. And it is good. And I use it. And I ride it; I ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell.”
