Lots of employers prohibit use of cell phones while working. Who wants to pay someone for personal pleasures when the employee could be doing something productive. Duh...
Duh yourself. Learn proper reading comprehension skills, then go back and re-read my comment. I did not say anything about "personal pleasures". I said simply checking the phone (not for an extended period of time) during off-times. And also, a lot of times teachers are texting each other about an issue or texting a principal for help. Again, that's not a personal pleasure.

I know this is hard to understand with your current reading comprehension skills, but maybe you could get someone to help you understand until you learn a bit more.

Just wanted to let all of you know that if you look on the Cabell County Website you will see an article about the calendar changes for the 2014-2015 school year I described in earlier posts to you.
Some people really do post things that are true on here in an effort to inform those who would care to know about them!!!
I teach Special Education and my Master's Degree is in Educational Leadership ( for the person who inquired)

What changes?

Thank you for your service in your profession. I could not do it. I think it takes a special person to work with students.

Thanks!

It is ridiculous. If they are not at work, they should be working from home via the internet, etc.

Something to think about

Teachers are contracted for 200 days payed. Let's do it like this. If you payed them as a babysitter would be payed no lunch or planning period. Let's see that would be roughly $5 an hour per child. Most classes are 20 kids that is low side I think for 7/1/2 hours. $520=1007.5=$750 a day. Now they get payed roughly $140 and your child gets an education. There is something to think about.

If this is true, the teacher should be docked 2 hours pay. What a crock. The average teacher in WV makes mid 40k EVERY YEAR and they want a raise!?! Plus all the benefits!?!

According to the West Virginia Education Association, the average teacher in the state makes about $45,000.

You truly are a sad individual...... What's wrong, you drop out of school and now can't get a job anywhere except McDonalds? Your welfare check not high enough for you? Or what? Maybe your wife left you for a teacher... Some reason you have a vendetta against people that actually work..... If you aren't happy with your pay. Or your job, better yourself and do something with yourself instead of bitching on Topix all of the time.......

You obviously have no concept of what "salary" means nor can you comprehend the fact that teachers are contracted for 200 days, 180 of those with children.... And that is what they will work, no matter if they are off for a month in a row, they will still work 200 days, I have no idea why you can't comprehend that.....
