I finally put a deposit on a shared house for June 1st and today my former landlady calls me and says one of her roomers is moving out and she will have a place for me if I still need it just after the first of the month. The lady moving out has been there two years. Why could that not have happened yesterday morning before I paid to move to another place that is nice but a couple miles from a bus stop?
Today I subbed in a 5th grade class. Of all the kids only 6 were responsible. The principal knew it and she spent a good portion of the morning in my classroom. When she wasn't there, the counselor was sent in to help keep order. She told me it wasn't because of me -- they are just an unruly bunch and no guest teacher deserves their kind of treatment. lol In the afternoon we had two birthdays to celebrate
We also had computer lab and their old teacher came to the classroom to bawl them out first. . . sigh She was there being interviewed to be a principal. . . she was an acting VP at another school and has a long term sub (who I was subbing for today) in her classroom. She made them all sit on the floor and bawled them out for treating me badly. I didn't think it was horrible. Yes, school is almost out and they are hormonal and such but gosh. Anyway, principal came to computer lab and asked if I would be ok. I said sure. It worked out ok because I took no guff from ay of them. At the end of the day, I wrote down the 6 names of students who were very cooperative all day to give to principal. She suggested I do that when I mentioned some had done a very nice job for me. I hope she gives them special recognition. I could have subbed there two more days (they called for another sub) but I already have a request for tomorrow and Monday in Kindergarten!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND now a job in special ed for Friday. . . when am I gonna have a chance to finish moving?
I guess subbing is better than being penniless again. One more month of it. I also have to move to my new place and out of this one by end of month. Busy, busy time for me.
The school was a 20 minute walk in my neighborhood. I saw many Iris along the way. Guess what I did on the way home?
