Public elementary schools in my state typically have teachers clock-in by 7:30, 15 minutes before the first bell rings. The end of the school day can range from 3:30-4:30/5:00PM. With that said teachers also must tutor students and/or sponsor student activities before or after school so their day could start as early as 7:00AM and end as last as 6:00/7:00PM. So teachers schedules can range from 8-12hrs a day depending on the school he/she teaches.
So be flexible and ready to work long hours for little pay. Always make time to get rest and recharge.
