I have students who are taking up to FIVE (that's right, FIVE) academies right now. Some of my students aged 12-13 are staying up to 2AM in the morning completing their homework and waking up at 6AM. It's absolutely insane if you ask me.
As for ourselves, we show up for work around 8:30AM and we get off at 7:55PM. That's teaching three classes that are three hours long. My classes are really enjoyable--the kids are keen and very fun to work with. However, standing and teaching nine hours a day, five times a week is starting to wear down our bodies. My "cankles" hurt (I don't have cankles; this is for all you Shallow Hal fans out there) after standing all day. Anyways, on the bright side we are making some extra money by working like slaves in a Nike shoe factory.
For your enjoyment, here's another depiction of me by one of my students. This was on the board after a break time. Turns out one girl in my class (she's about 10 years old) thinks I look like a female comic book character. I thought it was pretty funny--sending her out of the class for mocking me that is! NOT (inspired by Borat--now that's a FUNNY movie)!
