Exactly like that.
At my last job you had a 30 minute break for lunch. And, as basically every hourly job in America goes, you took a break; as in, you didn’t get paid.
Let’s compare: Not only do I work 8:30-4:30, with eating lunch included in the workday, but the attitude is so much more laid back. After lunch, I sometimes take a casual stroll around the gym-yard with other teachers as we meander our way back to the office.
Compare that to the mad dash to clock back in and start shuffling papers. A bit different!
All this leading up to my discovery today: there’s a room for teachers to sleep.
And sleep I did.
