Probably my Craziest Idea so Far

26 Oct


I know we are all stressed out and everything with the new evaluations. There is such lack of information and a lot of gossip… but I am not talking about that.


I was thinking in the terrible amount of work we do at home. Even if you are the laziest teacher ever, you still have some things to do OUTSIDE of your schedule. If you work by hours, you can’t go into the classroom without a lesson plan (GOD FORBID!) and you can’t use your teaching time to plan.

Books/Movies Sagas... easy EFL teaching? Doing some thinking, some answers too

So what is my idea? We should have Saturdays to work on planning and other boring management things and be paid by it.


WHAT? Yes, hear me out. What I mean is ‘let’s go to work on Saturday’ but only paperwork. AND GET PAID.

We are probably the very few professions that take work at home. I was raised by a nurse and she never brought a sick person home. Why can I do the same?


You are probably saying. “BUT I want my Saturdays”. Come on! Let’s face it. At home, it’s a jungle with your home, your spouse and your kids. Do we honestly pay attention to them because we are gradding/planning/scheduling/etc?

I know it’s wishful thinking but I need it to say it.
