I was sort of hoping that my “New Thing” blog was almost over, but alas, no. On Monday and Tuesday, I attended new teacher training, which I was happy to do. It had a lot of good information (and I love to learn). Today, we had the “welcome back teachers” rally in the large gym. It was a good event, but in the course of the event, I discovered that I had once again missed out on a possible full-time position. Today it became clear that I would be a long-term sub for this semester. Hey, at least I know which classroom I’ll be in so I can now work in earnest on cleaning up the place and making it my own.
