When schools call in a 2 hour delay, it's only for students. Teachers are expected to be there at regular hours.

Reasons for delay:
-Extreme cold temperatures
-Intense/unsafe Fog
-Inclement weather
-Unsafe roadways

Thoughts?

I think that sucks. However, I happen to have a job where even if everything else closes down, I still have to be at work. I see your point, though.

It's about the kids, not the teachers. I have to go to work...I don't get a delay. How about we turn the tables and ask what we think about you getting the summer off. I don't. I get 2 weeks a year...how many does a teacher get? If you are unhappy with the rules, find another job.

AND your point? Of course it is for the safety of the children. Teachers can make it at 8:00 without endangering a large number of students. WTF?

I'm a teacher and when we are on a delay, we go in two hours later just like the students. Most corporations are like that. Not sure which corporation expects that from its teachers. As far as getting the summer off - I chose my profession and worked hard to gain my teaching degree and license. I went to school to gain the benefits I have, and summers off is a big benefit.

When they took away half-days a couple of years back, teachers raised hell because they didn't have enough time for planning, test they needed to take & what-not. Go in early and do those things. You get paid, get in there and do something with that time.

1. I never said I was unhappy with my job. I love my job. I was simply asking for outsiders thoughts.
2. Teachers don't get paid for the summer. Teachers get paid for their time in the classroom. Period.
You get paid a salary tht accounts for that...you are not hourly...so don't pretend that you only get paid 10 months of the year because you don't. Delusional..no wonder our kids aren't learning anything.

Salary based on the 10 months... NOT 12.

Getting paid to much anyways. Look at the drop outs and look at the worthless teachers we have. Ought to fire the ones who have been there over 15 years and bring in new teachers fresh out of college who are in touch with the world.

None of you must have teachers in the family. spouse works elementary, never gets planning time, any free time filled with lunchroom, recess, or bus duty. Grading papers til all hours of the night. Emailing and calling parents all the time who don't give a damn about their own kids education and then get mad when their lazy ass kid gets a bad grade. Easily 10-12 hour days. Two months off in the summer is exactly what they need to do to recharge for another school year filled with the ungrateful public and politicians who nothing about teaching.

Oh and Walter Cronkite you are a moron. Spouse has a Masters, rediculous student loans, makes $35k, and shells out about $1500 a year of our money on school supplies. Gets a mere fraction of that back at tax time. Make too much money? You are delusional!

You must've been one of those dropouts. There's too much stupidity here for me to even begin to address. BTW, teachers in VCSC get paid for 182 days of work. Most choose to have that pay spread out over the entire year. Teachers do not have paid time off.

Do you really believe that lame reasoning? It's your yearly salary...if not I guess when you apply for loans, etc. you surely mention I make X amount per 10 months..your the exact reason why our kids are lacking any common sense nowadays.

Recharge? Seriously. We all have to recharge. Why don't we let our police or fire fighters off 2 months? Get off the high horse...nobody says teaching is easy...but life isn't easy. If you don't like what you do, do something else, but don't expect others to feel like teachers deserve two months off to recharge...they dont. But if you believe what some say, that 2 months is non paid...so a moot point...but that's malarkey too.
