If you don't have a year round summer job (like if you work in a school) do you work in the summer? If you don't work and don't go away from the summer, how do you spend your time?
If you have a separate summer job, what is it that you do?

My regular job is full time, 40 hours a week. No summer break but I do try to take off a week when the kids have off of camp.

I’m a teacher. In the summer I either work in camp so my kids can go or keep them home and do camp mommy- depending on the ages any given year.

I'm a teacher. This is year 6 working in camp so my kid can go for free. I get paid a little bit too. 🤪
She has this summer and next summer and then she ages out. She's convinced that she wants to work in camp but I'm not sure if I'll go back to work if she isn't going... maybe I'll be lazy and do nothing (probably not) maybe I'll work summer school

I have a regular full-time, year round job in the real world and I get very resentful when sahms and teacher moms ask me casually "So what are you doing this summer?" assuming I have summers off because they do. I'll be working for a living, like MOST people.

Teacher moms work for a living too, and have to scramble for a summer job or figure out how to entertain their children all summer on pennies

A lot of the teachers I know work in camps over the summer. I can only imagine how exhausting the camp jobs are.

And I can't afford camp for my kids so can either work in a camp (which is exhausting) and get free camp for my kids or else stay home with all my kids all summer (which is also exhausting). The grass isnt always greener.

Wow you do sound very resentful. Teachers work for a living too. No need to be so snarky and bitter about it. If you’re jealous go be a teacher. You won’t have to “work for a living”and you’ll have summers off.

Most people, who are not teachers, just continue wotking, in the summer.
Not really sure what your question is.
I work in childcare, in israel. We get about 2 weeks off at the end of the summer. But any other job ive ever had, just went straight through. Like most people.

I teach during the year (not in the frum community so decent salary BH) but I work very, very hard. I work in camp in the summer and I work very, very hard.
Both are rewarding and fulfilling, but for those jealous of teachers…give us a break. I work harder than anyone I know. And we’re still barely making it.

I grew up going to the country for the summer and no one worked. Many of my cousins complain about how bored they are because they don't work so theyre going away upstate
I can't say I'm not jealous. I work in a full time office job straight thru summer. It really gets me when ppl ask me 'so what you doing for the summer?
