Mrs. Hillbilly Mom's Top Ten Perks of Being a Teacher in the Wintertime

Mrs. Hillbilly Mom's Top Ten Perks of Being a Teacher in the Wintertime:


#10. When you're headed home after dark, it is easy to justify take-out for supper.
#09. A couple extra hundred bucks bonus on your December 5 direct deposit.
#08. Vegetable soup/grilled cheese in the cafeteria. (Oops. Now just vegetable soup.)
#07. Carols over the speaker during class change the last week before Christmas.
#06. Candy canes taped to your classroom door by student club members.
#05. Many students missing intermittently for caroling or community service.
#04. A tin of Danish butter cookies/jar of Hershey kisses on your desk from the principal.
#03. Other faculty willing to take your basketball game duty for extra cash.
#02. Two weeks off at Christmas.
#01. SNOW DAYS that give you a 9-DAY WEEKEND!

HM-You got a Christmas bonus AND you've been off all week?

Where can I apply?

Sioux,
Well, Madam...in a year-and-three-eighths, there will be an opening at Newmentia.

so, you are the reason for this nasty weather, all that begging for snow days!

Kathy,
I am the reason, but I am also highly effective. Let the record show that I stretched it into a TEN-DAY WEEKEND!
