I must agree with 2gifts. Both of my parents were public school teachers and the hours (at school) were as she described. My dad would teacher summer school, paint schools and do cleanup or work for the gas company or other assorted jobs. My mom taught piano year round except for holidays and vacations.

My dad chose to have his yearly salary taken over 11 months instead of 9 so there was a smaller amount monthly but it was consistent. He gets a very nice pension plus four "bonus" monetary amounts and that averages about $3k and then he has social security. He retired 28 years ago (at 61) and has no complaints.
