Another year, and more vandalized textbooks to comb through. This year my principal asked me to check the long-term sub's books. Turns out, 20 percent of her are unusable and will have to be junked. The others have bad words and icky picies. These are seventh-graders! Some I use a pen on; others get the Whiteout. Sometimes I have to tear entire pages out. This took me 3 days last year. 3 days! And not even a thank you from the P. This year, I may have some aides do the work. they have so little to do anyway - at least at this place Is this a good idea? I have a lot going on I have to take my daughter to photoshoots, I'm working on my movie script - I took an online screenwriting course and got an A for it! I'm thinking I will get some bites - I don't feel like being students' cleanup lady anymore.
