What do teachers do in summer?
Updated: Oct 10
One of the best parts about being an educator is that you get PAID summers off! The summer months off of school are a much needed break for teachers and students alike. But you may be wondering... what do teachers do with their summers off? We asked some current educators what their plans are for this summer and this is what they said:
John Sargeant, 6th Grade Teacher
"My wife and I will be celebrating my mother's 90th Birthday the middle of June, in Elko, Nevada. My wife and I will be spending the month of July in Fairbanks, Alaska, with a daughter's family serving there in the Military. We will experience the Land of the Midnight Sun, almost 24 hours a day. We will then spend some time in the Seattle area, the first part of August, visiting two sons and each of their families before returning to Utah in time for school to start again for next year! This is a summer of travel for us!"
LeAnn Andrews, 4th Grade Teacher
"This summer I am going to rest up from a crazy year. During the summer I will be spending lots of time with my grandkids. We are going to go to a few museums and maybe the zoo. I will not be worrying about how my students are doing but rather will be getting excited to meet my new students in the fall. I also go to education workshops and conferences to prepare for the coming year."
Larissa Cerveny, 2nd Grade Teacher
"Over the next summer I will be going back to Wisconsin to spend some time with family. During that time I usually spend as much time outside as I can. That involves things like boating, kayaking, cookouts, swimming, hiking, running, and just spending quality time with family. I love to spend time with my 7 nieces and nephews. Also, this summer I will be getting another niece in August so I will be enjoying getting to meet her for the first time."
