Summer Break Quotes Most Teachers Never Said

Share with Friends


Summer is a time for teachers to break from a long year of hard work and to recharge their batteries for the following year.

Heading into summer, teachers have often been heard saying things like, “I’m looking forward to catching up on some pleasure reading,” or “Family vacation will be wonderful; I have so little time during the school year to spend with my own kids.”

Then there are the kind of statements that many non-educators believe the average teacher always says when summer break arrives, based mostly on the myth that teachers teach, just so they can reach the Holy Grail — summer. Of course, we educators know these things are rarely said.
