Will Shatner is like that one crazy uncle you have who always manages to say something long-winded and questionably appropriate. He makes you cringe, but you can’t help but laugh and love him anyway.
Today I fulfilled a life-long dream and met my hero, Sir Patrick Stewart. He is every bit the gentleman I thought he’d be.
Only those teachers who are lucky enough to have a permanent position with a school board get paid over the summer. And that’s only if they take a reduced pay the other 10 months of the year.
Just to give you a bit of perspective…a friend of mine got her first permanent job this year with a school board (after 5 years of teaching). She got paid over the summer for the first time this year. That’s the norm in Ontario for new teachers. The whole paid summers off is a pipe dream, along with health benefits and a pension.
For those of us who work in private schools, we get paid per course. So if we’re not physically teaching a clasa we’re not getting paid. I have a job lined up for Sept (thank god!) but I still probably won’t see my first pay till end of Sept/beginning of Oct.
I hope that answers your question!
