  •  Professional development (13+ / 0-)

    Teachers devote a great deal of their own time to going to professional development in order to become better teachers, and often at their own expense. Teachers do this on Saturdays, after school, at night, and yes, in the summer.

    Every summer for four years, I spent a week of my summer vacation, I mean, unpaid leave, attending a wonderful science program for teachers, because I wanted to learn how to do field studies with my students in earth systems science. Another summer, it was a week of water studies with the author of the Rivers curriculum. It was time well spent, but it was on my own time.
