Saturday Night: Teacher Style

September 29, 2013

Teaching is a leisurely profession, right?  My Saturday:

  • tutor my own child in social studies and math
  • write a test on India
  • generate a walk-through map of southeast Asia in Minecraft and post it to DropBox
  • tweet about the test and the map
  • respond to work-related email
  • prepare lesson plans
  • reading for professional development

My Saturday is typical for the teachers that I know.  I am not doing anything exceptional.  Nor am I complaining — I am dedicated to my profession as my calling.  Keep that in mind the next time you hear someone talk about how easy it must be to teach.
