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 47.25 hours.
Total to date: 1771.5 hours hours. I have now worked 582 hours for free!
May 31st was my last day of school, so this will be my last post on my TIME CARD for the year. The 582 hours that I worked for free totals 89 extra days or about $11,000.
