Because this is my first blogg I haven’t really thought about which language I should write in. For now it’s English.
A lot of teachers looking forward to the summer holidays. Counting down the days, lessons, hours.What a lot of people can get a little annoyed with, is teachers having a winter holiday, a fall holiday, spring holiday and the biggy, a summer holiday which usually is about 2 months long.
What most people don’t know is that in general teachers have a written agreement to work approx. 45 hours a week. So they work in all their time off.
Teachers really need their time off, to be able to cope with all the stress of being a teacher.
But not everyone has a teacher holiday. We were offered a pay increase if we agreed to have a regular holiday, like most people have. So 6 weeks is the average time off if you are over 40. 6 weeks and one day if you are over 50.
No matter what kind of agreement teachers have, I wish them all a warm and sunny summer!
