Summer School

It is very odd for me to substitute for summer school because it is usually only made available to certified teachers and I'm only a certified sub. Anyway, I had worked 7 days with a scheduled 8th later this week, but I got a phone call yesterday informing me I would not be working Thursday as planned. In fact, I shouldn't have been working at all.

I had special permission last summer to work one day. I just assumed it was all good to go when I was asked this summer. Oops! It has something to do with the teacher's contracts and the teacher's union.

It is unfortunate that I can't work that one day.  I left a few things in the classroom in preparation to teach tomorrow. I'll pick it all up today and I will also get to see everyone and say good-bye. I consider them all my friends.

Summer school is done Friday and then it's just a few more weeks and we start the new school year.

"I expect to pass through life but once.
If therefore, there be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do to any fellow being,
let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it,
as I shall not pass this way again."
