Trip of a lifetime!

So happy that you get to go and do this.
I went to my HS 50th reunion 2 years ago, and it was terrific.
Have a ball with your family, your school friends, and your new PT buddy.

For day-to-day subs here, no teaching certificate is necessary. For long-term (over 2 weeks) subs, certification is required. I think that strikes a good balance. The classroom teacher writes the...

In our neck of the woods, teachers go back on August 12th. Students start on the 19th.
