One of the downsides to working for a large school district is that they pretty much own you. After a few weeks of school, if one school is low in number of students and another is over the student/teacher ratio, they can move the teacher with the least experience to any school and grade level they want. Guess who got moved this week?
They told me yesterday late afternoon, my last day at my school was today and I have the next two days to tear down one classroom, pack and move everything, and set up my new classroom. And meet parents. And write lesson plans for a new grade level. And get students on Monday.
Yep. It sucks. It means that I can't walk to work anymore (I'm really NOT looking forward to driving and this pretty much blows our idea of getting rid of one of our cars next year). And my kiddo won't go to the same school as me. And now I have major childcare issues.
But at least I have a job. For this year, anyway.
So what do you do when you're not sleeping? Start a new sock, of course. A pink lemonade lacy scallops sock. I hope this turns out better than the first four weeks of school have.
Apologies for the craptastic photo. Not a lot of natural light late at night.
