Here I thought that I'd kept up pretty well with this blog, but then I looked at the "last post" date.
I had my best day of the year last week when I was subbing in for one of the teachers at my school. All day as a classroom teacher in a Grade 1-4 class. A few more days, or even part days, like that, and I might survive this job! Yes, subbing in is different, but she'd left me a very minimal plan for the day (after we'd discussed and agreed on it...not as a nasty surprise!), and I was able to just be the teacher rather than the sub. It was a beautiful thing.
Next year, between a likely downsizing of the school staff, a maternity leave for one of the teachers, and my own preference for being in a classroom, I may be able to be a classroom teacher again, with only a bit of my time being "administration". Does it make me a complete sucker for punishment that I'm praying it happens that way?
