Guess what? Teachers do not get paid for the time we are on summer vacation. How would you (if you work) survive with 3 months of no pay per year?
Wrong! Teachers do get paid when they are off during the summer!

Ever hear of a sense of humor? You need to get one. The teacher was obviously being playful.

Teachers do not get paid in the summer. They are on a 10 month contract (200 days). Really is really misinformed.

Now, teachers do get paid if they set their 10 months of paychecks to pay out over 12 months. However, they are reducing their monthly income to stretch their checks out for an additional 2 months. Clarification, but they DO NOT get paid for summer....unless they teach summer school or are doing contracted work (outside of their standard teaching contract) for the school system.

teachers are SO underpaid anyway!!! I appreciate teachers. Having volunteered heavily in a local school- I gained an even larger respect for them than I already had. P.S. I'm hoping for a 2hr late tomorrow and I'm an underpaid and under slept Mom haha! Lighten up folks dang!

Who do you work for? If you work in Tazewell county, you obviously do not know how to read/comprehend your contract. You are the one spouting off. Go back and read my posts. They are CORRECT.

This is the post I was referring to! You are correct that teachers can have their salaries set for 12 months. If you read your post above, you should understand why I responded the way that I did! BTW, I do not work for Tazewell County and I can read and comprehend my contract perfectly well! Stop judging! Post correctly and then there may not be confusion with your post! Again, teachers do get a salary during the summer if they so choose!

Wait, so I posted the CORRECT information and you, in turn, tell me I'm misinformed? Then after you realize your reading comprehension skills aren't truly that great, you try to then agree with me??????
BTW, I was not judging you, just"educating"you.

You know I'm not going to let you ruffle my feathers because I deal with ignorance on a daily basis. Go find you a hobby and then you may not have as much free time on your hands!

Your first post stated that teachers didn't get paid during the summer! Then your next post had the correct information! You are the only person who needs to be educated! Don't post incorrect info and when you are called on it, you want to say something. I'm glad someone educated you by passing on the correct info about teachers salaries.

Oh my lord, i really hope you don't teach children. You "deal with ignorance everyday". Super great attitude teach. Lol ALL of my posts have the correct information in them. Teachers DO NOT get paid in the summer. Now follow closely because I know you're kind of slow. Teachers sign a 10 month contract. The months excluded are July and August. Teachers are NOT paid for those two months. If they choose to have their 10 month contracts spread over 12, then that is their choice. I'm starting to doubt that you are an educator. Educators would definitely not need 10 posts, that repeat the same correct information, in order to comprehend what is being said. Now read this post fully so that you aren't confused...in fact, read it at least twice please.
Now, I'm tired of trying to explain your contract to you. Best of luck to you and I truly hope you get over yourself.

I cannot believe the teachers in this area. Facebook is full of prayers for late schedule for Tazewell County and one even was hoping for the roads to freeze so that schools would be on late schedule so they can sleep an extra two hours. Well I have to get up at my regular time and drive 28 miles to work, freeze or not. What happened to the dedication of teaching? Sounds to me like they just want to do enough to just get by.
I am a teacher. I go to work at 7:30 every morning and there are days that I am not home before 8:00 or 9:00 at night--not to mention time spent with practices and events on Saturdays. Lets not forget the hours spent outside the school day planning and grading papers. How much work do you bring home? How much time, uncompensated, do you spend with children who aren't your own--quite often to the detriment if your own family? Look dedication up in the dictionary-- teachers embody the definition. Don't worry-- we certainly make up the extra hour we get on a delay and the occasional snow day. Our school system most definitely gets more than it pays for!
