I feel like that's a lot of jobs nowadays. We don't get planning time all the time, or a nonworking lunch. I had a screaming student in my room during my teacher plan time today. I get sent students when I am at lunch sometimes. All teachers work after school to plan for the next day or week. We can't make copies during school time because we are busy teaching. So in a way, we are kind of doing double duty. Teaching and planning for our teaching. That's a job in itself. And then as Special Education teachers, we also have a ton of paperwork for meetings.

Oh I could go on a whole different rant on that. But for break time we actually get that for our level of education. Its meant to be 50 minutes of non-contact (if you work 8 hour shift) break each day. Then there's meant to be 4 hours non-contact programming time each week to do the planning & paperwork but that doesn't always happen. So then you're left either doing it in your break or at home (both are discouraged or discouraged from doing too much). Many early childhood educators believe that if it can't be done in working hours then its not so important. But it isn't that easy to actually get it to happen as there's also an expectation for a certain level of paperwork to be done. Teachers pretty much have at least two jobs - the actual teaching, then the planning for teaching. But my industry has nothing on actual teaching, or special education. Its such a shame too but I guess most teachers have some understanding of what they're signing up for

Yeah, we did sign up for it. I just think it's ridiculous when other people claim how lucky we are that we get spring and summer breaks and other breaks for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes, we do. And yes, we quite deserve them too. No other jobs, or many other jobs, have the extra hours we all put in without 'overtime' pay. Also the only reason we get "paid" over the breaks is actually because they spread our pay across 12 months, and it's not that we get paid on our days off.

I don't even get that as we only close weekends & public holidays. So seems lucky to me
I would presume a lot of teachers are still working through those breaks too so it's not completely paid for days off. Then it would be a bit wrong to just stop paying someone for a few weeks because the school is closed. You would need to budget so you know you have the money for those periods. This way that isn't necessary

Yep, true. There are teachers who come to work over the weekends to catch up. I did that a lot last year because it was my first year at the new school but don't do that anymore.

Thanks Chelle. Saw you stepped down from Kelly. Your post makes sense. I remember reading you mentioning how Kelly seems to be only US-based and you not being to access to watch some of her stuff like interviews and such.

Yeah its a bit hard. When you've only got so much time & internet data (although I do have a bit more now) you've got to decide what is important to you. I simply don't care for what Kelly is doing & it is all in the US so felt like it was better to concentrate on things more important to me & myself. With her talk show being renewed for another season it doesn't look like the US-based thing is going to change any time soon. I have better things to do with my life than try watching things from that 5 days a week. If I'm feeling that way, best not to be there

I've seen very few clips & one whole episode

The fire near where my parents live is being controlled. Not under control yet but at least they've got some control over it. Looks like 6 fires now are joined together or close to in that area though

I saw pictures of the smoke/haze near the opera house and bridge. So crazy to think I was just there a few months ago.

Yes. You'd notice the difference from those pictures & how bad the smoke has been here. Crazy to think how much smoke is traveling into the city too. I'm not sure where exactly the smoke is from but I presume its from the major fire which is a bit north of the blue mountains, so its north/west of the city (supposedly the area is around 50 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, so where you were). All the other major fires are further up the coast
