|My wife's moment of fame before I got her onto NTUC photoshoot. Channel 8 caption was taken out of context by me. LOL|
1. You can never travel cheap
I'll be a millionaire if I get a dollar every time someone says "teacher very good hor? Go 1 whole month school holiday". Hello geniuses, teachers do not get annual leave and they do not get to choose which days to clear their leave. They only get that sad few days in between holidays because they still have admin work, planning and CCA to handle and travel will always be peak period price and the planes will always, always be packed with kids. Lucky?
2. 10pm is sleeping time
|A picture by my brother years ago show how unhappy he was with his wife's working hours. Yes, he married a teacher too!|
3. Watch your words
|You better watch your words or I'll find you and kill you.|
4. You are your partner's 360 agency
|One client from hell that you can't just walk away on.|
5. No teacher and student role play
Eeeeeew. Just no.
--------------------------------------There you have it. I mean I might be complaining a fair bit but I'm sure there are perks like for example they get to knock off early at times and can help you run some office hours errand. :p
Being a teacher is a noble trade, it's not about the money and it's never easy. You do not get much recognition either. And being a partner of a teacher is not easy as well. So here's one for all the teachers and their noble partners out there! Have a happy teachers' day!!
