I'm writing this because I'm feeling a lot of frustration right now from people who completely underestimate the jobs of teachers and the education system. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love my job, I love my class. I enjoy every second I spend in the classroom and I'm not for a second saying I don't. However, what I'm utterly sick and tired of is people who know nothing about what it's like to be a teacher. The typical assumptions of we start at 9, roll in at 5 to 9 and finish at 3 on the dot when the children do. Oh and don't forget we just do a random bit of lessons and then we have ALL those holidays too... Is anyone else sick of hearing this?
