Part sub – part teach – part locomotion

I wonder if there will be a day when I can actually teach at one school, have health insurance, and make a decent paycheck.  Let’s be clear that I’m not looking for a short cut, an “easy job”, or anything of the sort.  I went to school for four years.  I went to an unbelievably expensive graduate school for another two.  (Did anyone twist my arm on that? No. But did I think it would be almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a full-time job teaching? NO.)  I followed the rules.  I did what I was supposed to do.  I put THE TIME IN…and yet…well, part sub/part-teach/part loco…motion?

I will be subbing in a new district soon. Joy.

I am teaching part-time, and that actually does give me true joy.

I will constantly be writing, moving, and looking for ways to keep my head above water.  Constant movement is the name of the game people!

One day, I will look back on this and laugh.

One day…

College Bound on the Greyhound

Over the past couple of days I have seen so many of my students in town, preparing to leave for COLLEGE!

#1 It makes me feel so old that they’re all leaving for their freshman years.

#2 It make me so proud that they’ve gotten themselves to this point, many of these kids never thought that they would graduate high school let alone go to college.

Kudos to you all, you’ve made me so proud!
