It’s hard to believe how the summer is quickly disappearing and the start of school is just around the corner. School supplies are in the stores, and before you know it, the classroom bell will ring sounding the first day of school. For many teachers and school personnel, a summer vacation is becoming extinct.
In small districts, teachers and secretaries often wear more than one hat. They find themselves working throughout the summer to make learning more exciting for their students and their district even stronger when the new school year begins.
With college classes to take, sports camps to oversee, and the responsibility of extracurricular activities, many teachers spend their summers with little time off as they invest in the overall program of their local school district.
