So naturally he need even more money and more time off!
Yes, I could certainly do with more money, as everybody. :):) It is always better to have more than less, will you disagree? :)
As for time off, I don`t complain. Quite a lot of it during the year. Let`s see the 2019 schoolyear
September, October, November, December - very busy except for 1-2 November - All Saints` Day and 11 November - Independence Day..
Christmas and New Year- 11 days off.
January - Epiphany on 6th is a bank holiday.
In mid January - 2 weeks of winter holidays (changeable each year)
February, March - very busy, Easter came in April - 6 days off.
In May there are bank holidays on 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Corpus Christi on Thursday (moveable) and Friday after it is off too.
The school year always ends on Friday around 20th June and begins on 1st September (mostly).
In theory, it is a lot of free time. In practice, teachers are often employed to deal with various organisational tasks, eg recruitment procedures during summer holidays. I proved several times to my colleagues and head teacher that I am a lousy paper pusher so they usually leave me alone and I can enjoy off time in full. It is good to be a teacher. :):)
