What do teachers do when school’s over?
When school is out for the summer, that does not mean that teachers have a three month vacation. Numerous hours are spent in professional development sessions to prepare for the upcoming school year, meetings are held with colleagues to collaborate on content to be taught, classrooms are redecorated or moved (if you have to change positions), shopping is done for new materials, home visits to students are made, coaching a fall sport means that practices start in the middle of July, lessons are revamped, curriculum is aligned, and there may be a chance between all of this for one to take a short vacation to relax a bit before returning to school.
Teachers honestly don’t stop work in the summer,
As for money, I have the checks that are saved and distributed for the summer months. Other teachers may get a part time job, teach summer school, or do as I have done.
What a teacher does really depends upon that person and their financial situation.
Money wise, most of us get a part time job unless we’re married to someone who makes considerably more than us. I work here and there and try to have as much no-money fun as possible. I still get a check each month during the summer, but it’s a lot easier to spend it when you’ve got more time on your hands. Gotta be careful. 🙂
**After reading other answers, I have to throw in how nice it is to find time to read for pleasure. I’ve also helped my husband clean out 2 rooms in which we threw away lots of junk like Tom said. 🙂
Hope this helped.
Teachers get paid year round, whether they teach summer school or not.
Some tech summer school, or sometimes they find other jobs.
If a teacher needs to maintain or upgrade their license: take classes.
Teachers also sometimes prepare for the next year…
