Good luck!!! I'm sure you'll do just fine ...

You could come sub in my town ... the school system is about to fall apart ... I told dh a couple of days ago we gotta declutter and emtpy the crap out of our attic and basement cuz we'll need to move in a few years before the kids hit middle school ... now I'm thinking sooner ....

The elementary schools are wonderful, middle and high school are on edge due mainly to major budget cutbacks. We had a failed vote on Monday that would have given the schools $$, 17 teachers will be let go. On Tuesday a beloved elementary school teacher-turned-principal lost a 6 year battle with cancer (of course some say he lost the fight to live, knowing what he'd face if he ever made it back to school). My son's first grade teacher has been out since Wednesday "because she's so sad" ... she says she'll be in on Monday, but most likely this will be her last year there because she doesn't have lots of seniority, and the principal was also her teacher and a neighbor when she was young ...

AND NOW ... I just heard on the 11pm news that the superintendant of schools just resigned along with a 'financial manager' (I didn't even know this small town HAD a financial manager). And until this week, I've always LIKED living in this small, compact town ... 1.6sq miles, 18,000 people, bordering on boston. UGHHH!!!!

ANYWAY ... Mary ... I'm so sorry I barged in on YOUR post. I really hope you have a good day tomorrow.
Starting again in 2006!

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!!
