...and I'm very nervous! The teacher I'm taking over for is leaving because her husband got a job elsewhere. Right now I'm only there for two weeks until they decide what to do. I'm HOPING I can get on for the entire year. I don't think it's fair to have the kids--who are already used to their teacher start adjusting to me only to lose me in two weeks! I have no idea how to make it known that I _want_ this job for the long haul without sounding pushy or aggressive. :help: Advice would be lovely. In any case, for the next two weeks these 7th, 8th and 10th graders are mine and I'm SUPER excited. I've worked with all these kids before and I just adore them. I think I'm too excited to sleep tonight.
