What is a Weekend?

What is a WEEKEND?

As I mentioned in this post, I LOVE my job. I am a full blown addict. I have a hard time turning work off.

What role does a weekend or a holiday play in my teaching? It is my time to plan. Sunday is lazy day. A day where the kids are doing what they would like, my husband is tinkering around the house with yard work or house work(I know I got a good one) and I am doing what I would like: 

It can be marking, planning or reporting. It doesn't matter but either way Sunday is the day that I prepare for the week. I like to have my whole week in advance planned out. This way I have the freedom to do something with the students during break. I get to have a little time in the evening with my family instead of doing school. 

I don't have a weekend. I have a day off. 

That is my choice and I am proud of it. Having my week this way makes me prepared and ready to be the best teacher I can be. 


  1. Hi Maria,

    I feel the same way about my weekends. They're a time to sleep in and breathe, but there are hours and hours of time to get to the things I don't have a chance to in the week. Lots of reading and planning.

    I wonder how you manage it with kids. I can't imagine trying to balance my current schedule with motherhood. How do you do it?


  2. Honestly some days I wonder myself! It truly is a very delicate balance that I often struggle with.
