Another school year over...

I am coming into the last two day of this school year.  It is finals week, and I couldn't wait for this week to arrive.  An update with employment = the school district did not rehire me, and so I am now back onto the substitute rolls, at least for the beginning of the next school year.  I know of a possible opening, starting in 2014, but that is over a year from now.  We will see what happens...

Exhausted...

The first day back from Spring Break...I can't remember how I did it for so many years before my year off.  I had just gotten used to sleeping in and everything when I had to turn back on the damn alarm to start teaching again.  2 cups of coffee didn't even phase me and I had a meeting after school where I was yawning so hard, I thought that my head was going to split in two at my jaw.  I have decided to apply for the position on a permanent basis, so wish me luck and everything, as I try for permanent employment again...

I can't wait for June to roll around...

Working again...for now

I have a job.  It is the same job I have been working at for the last few months, but it is now officially permanent until summer.  I have taken myself off of the substitute lists for the towns I have been subbing in, but I still have to reapply for the permanent position at the end of the school year.  I am trying to get rid of "the sick" that was given to me as a present by a student I have, but I am coming out of it - I think.  My Christmas was wonderful, and I got what I wanted, while I gave the lovely wife pretty much what she has wanted.  I hope you and yours have a wonderful New year and I hope your Christmas was just as good as mine (minus "the sick" that is).  I might be back soon, it just depends on how much time I will have now that the job is permanent, and I am very busy.

I think I have figured it out...

It has been a long time since I have been here.  I am now in a different sector of the universe and I am currently in the process of trying to find a new teaching position.  The two I applied for, I didn't even get a call back, just the "sorry you are well qualified, but not what we are looking for" types of letters.   I have applied for a third position, half time, and not exactly a pure fit to my qualifications, but I hope to get a shot at an interview.  I just looked at the salary schedule for the place I am at, and I realize why I am getting these letters.  I have a masters degree.  I have 7 years teaching experience and 3 years active service in our nation's military.  If they give 1:1, that means that they will have to pay around $14k more per year to have me, instead of some young buck straight out of college...

But still, please wish me luck...

I hate people - just the latest.

I hate parents that don't come to meetings that have serious consequences for their own children. Screw them all to hell. on other notes: Theives and liars too, I hate you the most...

One of my favorite videos ever!

That is all. I hope that you all had a better day than me.

I'm back.

I am going to put in the new Water Heater that we just bought from Home Depot.

I figure that it will take about 4 hours to finish, so we will have hot water around 2 pm.

School is doing OK. I believe that the students are better than last year. There are a few that just shouldn't be there, such as the student that has already passed my class and is just sitting there because he couldn't get off his lazy ass and get a new class because his counselor obviously didn't do their job correctly and finally get him out of my class as this is the third year in a row that he is in there.

Well, I have to go, ttyl!

long time, no posts

For those who know me and CTG, you can catch up with what is happening with me, from her. Now that this year is over for my teaching, I now have more freedom to do a little blogging. I might have something on my mind from time to time, but you know me, I won't necessarily write about it unless I can't get rid of the angst by the normal methods, ie: BattleFront II, Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, or just mowing the lawn.

But anyway, this is how and what I plan on doing for most of my summer: NOTHING school related. That is right, I have been teaching for just about 2 years straight, and I am tired, pooped, and I have just about had it with the population of 15 year olds in my neck of the world. I hopefully will do a lot of reading, both for enjoyment and for the job. There are about 20 or so books that I have aquired from different sources that may be of use to me on the job. I am currently in the middle of a vampire novel (I would give the name, but I dont have it here with me) that is very good, that I had to set down when the CST's were over. When I am not reading, I will be hopefully fixing more of the house, working with the yard, gardening and probably doing some swimming at the pool a few miles away w/ CTG. I will also be playing with my Wii and PS2, the aforementioned games as well as a few that I haven't even opened due to the time crunch. There will be taping DVD's of stuff that I have recorded for school as well as trying to find movies that I have recorded earlier, but the DVD's have dissapeared or were scratched beyond repair.

There is a thing I am doing in August that is related to school, but I will be "going to college" and getting paid for it. That is all I am going to say about that. I will probably also start thinking about a different class that I might be teaching next year, but it is a class that is practically the same that I taught last year, but this will be an A - G requirement type.

Well, gotta go get started on that nothing stuff. have a good summer
