  •  Summer break (none)
    Maybe you are an especially hard-working teacher, but my friends and relatives who are teachers get an enormous amount of time off (and by that I do not mean time to sit at home grading papers). My sister, for example, goes to Maine for two months every summer and does not one lick of work. She is working for an excellent school district and gets great reviews, so I doubt this makes her somehow sub-par. Based only on my own personal experience, the teachers in my life seem to have a far easier work-load than other professionals. I'm sure you disagree, but I'm sure your experience is not universal.
