So yesterday I could have officially gone back to school and get my keys back and see what has been going on. I'm putting it off since I know that once I do, I will want/feel the need to be there every day and therefore, bye-bye summer. Anyway, something interesting happened yesterday. My wonderful boyfriend's fabulous step-brother called me up to get a ton of his extra teaching supplies. The worst part of it though was that he is officially not going to teach anymore. He went to grad school an interned at a local urban Middle School...and was hired immediately for the next two school years. Budget cuts threatened his position so he found a new job teaching at a very wealthy high school nearby. The budget there cut him again. This past year he worked at another very suburban and highly-regarded high school...and found the budget cuts there forced 3 English teachers out...and he was one of them. He is now going back to school for EMT training, and it breaks my heart. He was a phenomenal teacher and always made me want to do my job even better. He is pushing through and doing well, but I can't help but wish he still taught. Anyway, I received a collection of items that I am trying to sort though so I can re-claim my living room.
|Assorted things, including 7 CD players|
|TONS of lined paper packs and folders|
|A bunch of teaching books as well as some|
"How to Play the Banjo" books for my boyfriend...and he doesn't even own
Soooo my classroom still awaits. It's a cloudy day here in NY. I am going to pick up and maybe get some scrapbook things together. I'm feeling crafty! :)
