    15 personal days?? I wish!!! We get 1 personal day per year. However, we have 20 paid sick days available to us but we really aren't supposed to take those just because. The personal day can be used whenever for whatever .... even shopping!

      I think you felt the same way I did when I heard 15 personal days!!! Like I said we get 2 and it always seems you either really need them plus more or you don't end up really needing them and just use them for fun!

Getting a sub is not as easy as most think. My classroom would be wild if I had a sub the last couple of days.

        We have already had 4 snow days. I can have to 2 more and will be okay. So I am hoping February and March are quiet months!!
        There's a lot of things that suck about being a teacher, but time off isn't one of them... LOL. Guaranteed holidays, summers, and weekends off isn't bad. Some districts have regulations like you can't take a personal day both the day before and the day after a normal school holiday off period, but other than that, the 15 personal is standard for most teacher contracts. You also get days to use on Jewish holidays, graduations, death in the family, etc. A lot of diseases go around in schools so a lot of teachers are actually sick often, but some of them have wedding stuff to do. :) Are you in a small district? Maybe that's why you don't get as many.

            Tell your union to get on their job! LOL. When I was part time and only teaching 2 classes a day at a charter school I got 3. You all are getting jipped! You should take a few days off in protest.
