Hi all! I am off on a personal day today, away from my classroom while a trusted sub takes over for me!
Are you a personal day hoarder? In my district, we have negotiated a total of 3 personal days. We have one that we (basically) HAVE to take at some point because we won’t get paid/rewarded for NOT taking it, and it just disappears. The other two days, if we don’t take them, we can get paid for them – a heavenly sum of about $50! And after taxes, it might be about $30! Who could pass that up?? (Although I have passed it up during some years – I figured I could buy half a bra at Victoria’s Secret . . . .)
Well, I had a planned personal day last week also, and was thrilled to find a small gift when I returned to my classroom the next day. You can see the beautiful gift in the picture below.
