Here's what people think teachers do all day - and what they actually do

woodleywonderworks/flickr I was a teacher for 30 years, except for one five-year hiatus. This year I left the profession. The short wedding umbrellas explanation is that I was burned out. I arrived at school at 7:45 every morning, I rarely left before 5:30 p.m. and I was often there later. As a new school year gets rolling, I offer two lists. Keep in mind that these are drawn from my experience in private schools, which are regarded as an ideal place to teach because of their small class sizes.

What people think teachers do: ●Teach five classes or so. ●Prepare lessons. ●Create assessments such as quizzes, tests and other assignments. ●Grade assessments. ●Take long vacations. What teachers do: Flickr/openpad ●Teach five classes or so - which is like doing five performances every day in which you stand up in front of 15 people and entertain them for an hour. Or it's like being a pitcher in a game. You are always part of the play.

●Prepare lessons. Research. Reread a chapter of, say, "The Scarlet Letter" and an article about Puritan culture, prepare discussion questions, plan an activity, figure out how to pace the class. To keep students' interest, you need to shift gears. ●Create assessments. Write up the assignment, create a rubric, draft detailed instructions. Quizzes should be fair to everyone but also test whether students have done the work.

A good five-question multiple-choice quiz can take 45 minutes to an hour to create. ●Grade assessments. One essay for a class of 15 means reading some 60 pages of student-written work, writing and editing comments, and making a judgment about each grade, all while wondering: Is this fair?
