Steady Gig @ GHS
So, an art/technology teacher in another district planned to take family leave for the birth of his first child, so I got on the sub list in that district so I could take the job. He teaches web design, Photoshop, and Illustrator ... not my strongest suit but I took some time to prepare. I just finished my first week (he gets 2 weeks paid, and may choose to take unpaid time after that) and it has been crazy! Luckily the kids are pretty good - no major shenanigans, just sometimes they get lazy and come up with excuses not to work. It's weird being out in the suburbs - lots of white kids and really nice facilities. It's also good to get known in new districts to widen the job search net come Spring.
