I am keeping track of how many hours I work during this school year. My contract only pays me to work 183 days a year, from 7:30-2:30 (that is 1189.5 hours in total). We are not told we have to work extra hours, but there is no way I could plan, correct papers, make copies, make phone calls, etc., just working to contract. Usually I arrive at school by 6:15 a.m. and leave around 3:15 p.m. Then when Samuel is in bed for the night, I do at least another couple hours of work. I also take stuff home on the weekends.

This week I worked 47 hours.

Total to date: 1345.5 hours hours. I have now worked 156 hours for free!

Welcome to my life, kiddo! I run a neurosurgical practice and supposedly can do this on 35 hours/weekly. In fact, I am seldom less than 10 hours in the hole each week, and frequently come in on weekends to "catch up" (hah!).
