Not to mention, don't most other professions have a paid vacation time which you can earn and save up to use whenever you like. If our job is such a cake job, like the responder is saying, why can't we earn vacation time and let someone else handle the class for five or six weeks of earned paid vacation time. Ahhh... there is absolutely no respect for our profession. Also, if it so simple why are we required to constantly pay for more classes to be better at our profession. All we are asking for is a little consideration and understanding. And maybe a little more pay so we can make it through the summer. I know I spend about 1/5 of my check each month on my classroom supplies. Pencils, paper, and even printer paper is no longer always supplied!
