Postcard exchange

We had fun with several postcard exchanges many years ago. I was teaching in a low-income area, so I basically funded the whole thing on my own. To buy real postcards turned out to be quite...

I'm sure you aren't the only person who is wondering what's going on with the school openings. I would call the district office (either the main office or HR.) Explain that you're a new substitute...
