I was partly right.

They had a sub for the new teacher for the first two days of school. She was supposed to start today, but didn't. The previous sub was in for another teacher today, so caught me up. They had gone to...

First job this year is a mystery

High school English as an additional support teacher. I'm thinking that it might be for the open position and that the sub they have is going to be gone. Or it could be special ed, but those usually...

Yep

At least my district does. In theory, preferred subs get an hour of notice before it goes out to all subs. There are kinks in this system, though. I've gotten notices and immediately went to accept...

My school

Middle school with about 450 students, grades 6-8. I am so jealous. The entire staff, from certified to classified and administration went kayaking after lunch yesterday. What a great way to have fun...

Let's see. If I worked all days I am able to (120 as a retired teacher) at $90 a day... around $10,00. Helps make up for the fact that I took early retirement.

Hi!

I just signed up again. I keep saying that this is my last year, but I love being able to teach and not have all the other responsibilities. Probably won't take any jobs until after Labor day since...

I always ask for someone in America

They have to transfer you. Even if they protest, you can ask to speak to someone who you understand.

This is my second go-round. Two different cancers 24 years apart. Things sure have changed in that time. I'm also going to have radiation. Not thrilled about that, but it will be easier this time...

Lumpectomy done

Got to the hospital at 7:00 a.m. and was home for lunch. I'm all bound up, so am clueless as to how I look. No shower for two more days. UGH. Back to the doctor on Friday, then should be okay to...

Ah yes, the pelvic ultrasound

Luckily, the nurse had a great sense of humor. And I got to insert it myself. Good times...<!--giggle--><!--eyebrow--><!--giggle-->

My favorite

Chicken, green olives, grapes, green onion, almonds, and sometimes finely chopped red pepper (if I have it on hand). Chop, mix, add mayo and pepper. The olives make it salty enough. Love the taste of...

Drooling here

Mayonnaise and Tajin seasoning (it's a chili powder/lime seasoning) that my DIL's dad introduced me to. Tajin is also great on pineapple and watermelon!

We took the peninsula part and added 9 inches

That extra width is perfect for placing stools. Caution: don't order counter height stools like I did. The guys cut off six inches on each stool so they would fit.

Only watched first four shows

Loved it, but yes, it definitely is NOT a network show. If my CBS shows aren't on tonight and hubby is still planting, I might just sneak in a couple more episodes.

Twice

Another coming up in a year. Eat light the day or two before prep. Last time, I had to drink two little bottles of yuck. But that was it. I followed each up with ice cold water and kept it down. It...

Ugh!

I'm lucky that math teachers where I sub know my lack of math ability. Our sixth graders were working on volume and figuring it out. There is an app that I downloaded. It's called Photo Math, I...

Extended time

One reason is for ADHD/ADD students. Focus is an issue, so extended time is given, because it's in their 504 plan. One of my sons even got extended time in a quiet setting when he was in college.

Right now

Pay the fee and renew. I don't think there needs to be anything else done. As a retired teacher, I don't even have to pay the fee!! YAY!!

That should have gone straight to admin.

We had a 7th grader do the same thing. Ten day OSS and couldn't come back until there was a meeting with parents, counselors, and principals.

I love half days

Of course, in my state as a retired teacher I can only work 120 days. And I figure that some money is better than no money. I took early retirement, so my retirement check covers only basic bills....

Not being done right

Our district slowly got into being a 1-1 Chromebook district. Students begin keyboarding in first and second grades. In third grade, they begin using Chromebooks in the classroom. Nobody takes them...
