Ep 31: Summer Break
Ah, the sweet sound of the final school bell, marking the start of summer break for teachers. But what really happens when the classroom doors close and the students head home for the summer? In this episode, we take you behind the scenes to uncover the truth about teachers' summer break.
Join us as the WTWA gang explore the lesser-known aspects of teachers' lives during this seemingly endless stretch of free time. We dive into the realities of teacher duties that continue even during the break, such as lesson planning, curriculum development, and professional development. Discover how teachers invest their summer in honing their skills, attending workshops, and finding new and innovative ways to engage their students come fall.
But it's not all work and no play. We also delve into the much-needed respite that summer break brings. Experience the joy of not having to set an early alarm, the freedom to explore personal hobbies and passions, and the ability to recharge and rejuvenate away from the demands of the classroom.
