Have you read the 2,000 hours blog yet? It's a blog that's written by Charles Ripley who is a high school English teacher who just finished his 5th year of teaching and is concerned about the number of teachers that get burned out in 5 years or less. He describes his blog by writing, "2,000 Hours is a blog with a single purpose. I'm going to record every hour of work I do as a teacher for the next year. I hope to change misconceptions about teachers in America by doing so." It's a fabulous blog that you should definitely check out, especially if you have concerns about the number of hours teachers work.
I was mentioned on his blog because I wrote a comment telling him how much I liked The Hunger Games series and asking for suggestions of dystopian literature. You can read his post here. I like the concept of his blog because I know that I spend a lot more time working than I'm paid for. I've started documenting my hours at the beginning of this summer. So far I'm up to 25 hours and 25 minutes.
