Teacher contracts are a little vague... because there is no way to include all of the things that we really do within a day, and the general public has no idea how weird our job can get. Today was full of "other duties". I am not going to go into what happened, but I will just say that teaching sometimes is really gross. Kids are sweet and funny and sometimes really disgusting. As I was having a very strange conversation with a student today, one of my very favorite teachers overheard me. She just looked at me and smiled and said, "and other duties - as assigned". Some days are just like that.
