I know many schools cut back this year due to budget deficits-so I am glad to be able to make some extra money. But this is the first year (and I've done it for the past 8 summers) that I've regretted this decision. Today was Day 2 it felt like Day 22. Part of it is that we had to share another school campus because ours is beginning some construction and it's hard to get used to all new policies, location of things (you have to get a key to use the teacher's restroom, like at the gas station ). Part is that we are supposed to follow a specific math and reading curriculum-we don't even have the materials for the latter yet and the math is just too easy for them, so it's rewriting the whole thing anyway (it amazes me how little most people think Kinders can do). It's also such a long day-7:30 to 2:30 - no break, have to eat lunch with the kids. Anyway, I'm just complaining-maybe it will make those of you who wanted to teach but couldn't feel a little better?
