I didn't see that it was such a horrible thing. I had interviewed for a part-time position at the high school. When I went to the school to pick up materials, the principal told me about the middle school addition. I'm fairly certain it was a late addition. The middle school had a huge class of 7th graders with 30 too many kids to distribute into classes. I had just been hired and had room in my schedule, so they gave the class to me. It did surprise me . . . a lot. But it was okay. The high school principal even came to the middle school to do one of my observations. He had been the principal at the middle school before moving to the high school, so he enjoyed going back.
