    Hi, all.

    It's been ages since I've posted, but the real-life has been keeping me busy.

    I have a good news/bad news update to your job listing. I am not teaching the math summer camp this year. The Catholic school that offered the position is facing drastic cuts, and not enough students enrolled for them to run the course.

    The good news is that the job in Illinois is going very well. Within a couple of days of my working for them part-time, they wanted to know if I would be willing to work full-time. I said yes. I've been teaching Geometry for them full-time now for about 6 weeks.

    I just got the letter officially offering me the teaching position at the charter high school in NW Indiana yesterday. (I wonder how many times they have to send me a letter telling me that I'm hired. I thought the letter they sent me 6 weeks ago was "official" enough.) They are assigning me to 10th grade, which says "Geometry" as far as the traditional high school programs around here goes.

    I hope that turns out to be the case. Teaching Geometry at the American School in Illinois has helped me spot trouble areas in the curriculum. I get enough feedback from the students to recognize which are the topics that are easily understood, and which ones are more challenging. I've also spotted some parts in the text where the explanations are not as clear as they should be. I'm hoping this experience will help me recognize problems that my students might have in the classroom come fall.

    Sorry the math camp thing didn't work out; however, it sounds like it opened up more opportunities for you!

    One of those jobs HAS to be for STG because she's cheerleading so hard for everyone else that good karma has to come her way.
