Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Most public education teachers make a very nice salary and benefits, thank you very much, for the number of days worked each year. Most of us would be happy to have off about 4 months vacation time during the year.


    I know a lot of teachers and none of them get off four months. Not even three. Teaching is very hard in this century and many use time off to further their education. Besides they need time off and they don't get paid for that time.


    The average school year is 180 days. Teachers are generally off from mid May to mid August. The are off about two at Christmas vacation and a week for spring break and other days off throughout the years. Most teachers are paid on a year around basis, therefore they are paid while not working. The average number of days for most other workers is about 235 days.
    The average tezcher hourly wage is about $24.30 per hour based on a 180 day/8 hour work day for a teacher making $35,000 per year.
    A nurse working in a hospital making $35,000 per year working 235 days per year makes about $18.62 per hour.
