I think today is Saturday. (It is, right?)
My school is over, teaching is over, my son is out of school, we've done a week at WDW, and aside from getting the boy to tennis lessons twice a week, I have no schedule. It's really, really weird.
The WDW vacation deserves a post of its own, so I'll do that later when I have more time. (I know, I know, it looks like I've got nothing but time right now, but I'm just not feeling very creative since we've been home. Lazy is more like it. )
The bummer part is that the day before we left for Orlando, which was the day AFTER school ended, my principal called to let me know that I had been bumped out of my classroom by someone who had more seniority. So as I'm packing to leave, I find out I have no job for the fall. I'm back to Square One, as far as interviewing and starting over, which most likely means a new grade level IF I can land a spot. Competition will be fierce, since there's probably 70+ teachers in my same situation. I hope that I haven't outpriced myself by getting my MA this year. It would be much cheaper to hire a younger teacher without the extra degree.
Oh well, it is what it is, and something will work out eventually. I'm thankful that I have another year of experience to add to my resume. I still have to go empty out my classroom and I'm putting that part off. I don't wanna! :stamps foot: I told my office manager to tell the new teacher that my classroom was haunted to try and scare them away- ya think it will work?
