Hindsight: The Break

School vacation is over. It went by really quick and fast as if I only blinked and it's gone.

We have just started school a few weeks ago and my life is back in the fast lane again. Vacation is over and I haven’t started on any project that I planned to do before the school ends. What a vicious cycle! It has been like this since I started teaching way back in 1996. And I should know better.

It's another school year and I am lucky to get hired again as Educational Technician this year. It has been a really busy year for me and I should not be complaining. I am blessed to be able to work 2 jobs when other people are either laid off or unemployed at all. Yes, I am thankful for the jobs.

But with the amount of work teachers have and with amount of time they have in their hands, I think the theory of equilibrium is somewhat lost in the process. I am speaking not for myself but for all teachers and educators in general. I am an Ed. Tech. now [thank God] how much more if I was a teacher who is in-charged of the classroom. Oh I can only think of the worst case scenario. Hah!

They need a break. The poor teachers need a break. They need more than 2 months of uninterrupted vacation to be able to recharged their drained self-esteem to function well.

Well, teachers do get a break... somehow. But what do teacher’s do on our break time? Really… do they really have a break? I mean a "break, break"!

It has been crazy since the school year began and I feel that - I need a break! For real! LOL

"I told you she's just a friend!" He said. "I know." She replied. "So why are you mad?" He asked. "Birds of the same feather." She snapped.
