The Teacher in Me Ends at 3

There’s something about teaching that has always struck me as weird. In complete disregard for the fact that we are paid a 9 month salary that’s divided over 12 months and for the hours of roughly 7:30-3:30 (depending on where you work), people think they have to stay late. 
There’s no extra pay for staying past clock out time. 
In reality, you’re losing something instead of gaining. You’re losing time.

I recently shared my views on being a teacher and mother, over on the Lafayette Mom’s Blog. I’d so love for you to head over there and read all about how I separate work from home (and I'd love it if you left a comment) .
