Only 26 days until school starts...

...and it's official...I was notified that I am back to full time status!!!! WOO HOO!!!!

Due to budget issues two years ago, my position was cut to 5/7ths time, which means I taught 4 periods a day and had one prep...and only got paid 5/7ths of my salary....Which really sucked - I didn't work so damn hard putting myself through college to have a part time job. What sensible district cuts Math classes and leaves certain electives full time?

Just a little down side to this news...the new Principal has rearranged classes and I am now the new Pre-Calculus and Calculus teacher. Holy shit! Where the Hell are my college textbooks and notes?

So, am just a lot little nervous about that part of it...

I am thinking I need to get my butt off the couch, put down those lovely socks, and drive to school to get some teacher editions so I can start learning how to do it all over again writing lesson plans.

See...Teachers do work at home during the summer...shit!

Yes, dear, teachers DO work at home during the summer. As I look across the room at my couch, I see several new teacher's editions that I went to school only yesterday to pick up for my perusal.

Only I must do more than persue--I must pour over them and actually LEARN stuff so I'm ready to teach from them in a couple of weeks! YIKES!!

My BFF was a teacher here in the Fairfax County school system and went through the same thing, Her oldest daughter just went through it this summer. BBF retired when they were putting her classroom in a trailer. Daughter quit her job and a week later was hired full time with better conditions. But see in your lasest post that all came out good for you.
