Einstein's Theory & Teachers on Vacation

If you really want to understand Einstein's Theory of Relativity, all you have to do is teach. Any teacher knows that time is relative to where you're at when you're spending it.

Let's take a survey to see. Teachers, answer these questions:

1.  What is the longest month of the year?

2.  What are the shortest months?

Survey complete.

If you are a teacher, I bet you said, the last month before summer break.  For teachers here in Memphis, it's typically May. May seems to last about 200 days. By contrast, the shortest months are those of the summer, which are about four days long, total. That is the theory of relativity!

If you don't teach, you probably listed one of those 31 day months for the longest and February for the shortest. Why? Because you're not in the classroom day in and day out wearing yourself down as you work to be the best you can be.

Since your vacation is so incredibly short, you can lengthen it by sitting around doing nothing. That might slow down the speed of the summer months. As for me, I'd like to get moving. Fun in the sun, a vacation, or even out to lunch with a friend may speed up your summer, but it's a lot more fun that sitting around. So, make your list of those things you need or want to do, but never have enough time during the school year to get these things done. Then get around to it!

In case you don't have one, you can print and cut the object below!
It's a round tuit.

If you're not out having fun but rather working on getting ready for a new school year, you are probably not alone. We are a hard working group!

Yes, time is relative for a janitor, too. Time scrubbing toilets and mopping floors is slow going, time finally spent at home in the evening is gone in a snap.

Hope you are having a great summer!

February is the longest month of the year because winter has dragged on too long. And the summer months are certainly the shortest.
