On a break!

I'm on a break from school so that I can spend the week finishing up my Master's work. That is one of the perks of being a substitute teacher! Wahoo! Love it! :)

I applied for three more jobs, but didn't get them. So I guess I'll just have to try to get highly qualified for at least reading this spring and maybe for Math and Language Arts as well. What a pain, but seems to be necessary. Thoughts?

Staying busy subbing

I am staying busy subbing. I've been to a little over half of all of the elementary schools in our district, as well as all but one of our middle school and one high school.

Yesterday I subbed in a self contained special education room and it made me miss working with those kids. I love how the teacher had the classroom and paraprofessionals all set up. I'm going to have to remember it so I can do something similar when I get a job again. I've applied for a couple of temp special ed jobs, but haven't heard anything yet.
