Ein echter Lehrer geht nicht unter / A Real Teacher Never Goes Under
Before teachers leave for their 9 weeks of comp time, they still have to do the grading and then throw the kids out. Time to look back at the school year.
To look back on a year full of project weeks, parent-teacher talks, further training - but also on the good times. To look back on a year full of innovative ideas such as the golden toilet brush: every kid who manages to pee on target three times in a row gets it. An average of two brushes are handed out per year.
When God created teachers, she meant well. That's why teachers are fundamentally optimistic people. Teachers believe everything changes for the better in education - but they also believe that the ozone hole closes at 18.00 and that Dornbirn is a great party town.
But no matter: now it's the holidays, and for teachers that means there's finally time for second jobs to afford the new car. Although the old one needs just 3 litres per 100 kilometres - of oil. Through the education we teachers have been blessed with, all side jobs in the world are open to us. For example as a craft entertainer in the outdoor pool or as a figure in "Sorry" on an indoor playground. Elementary school teacher Markus Hauptmann uses the holidays to write cabaret programs, in which he processes his job. Supervision on stage, so to speak. And the audience has been having fun for years.
"A Real Teacher Never Goes Under" seamlessly fits into the successful programme "CSI Classroom", "Teach Me If You Can", "I Know What You Did the Last Schoolyear" and "#Kidz". Programmes for everyone who ever had anything to do with school - and in the best case that's most of us.
By the way, there is also music again, of course. Markus Hauptmann and Martin Mader are most eagerly working on becoming the biggest white pop stars since Michael Jackson.
