At least it feels as though I’ve fallen off the face of the interwebs. Actually I’ve been substitute teaching. And sitting behind the teacher’s desk, and in the van, and on the bleachers, and in meetings, and blah, blah, blah. Here is what three days of substitue teaching look like. Well, first off this is a craptastic picture, but I had to show off my bright blue tights and the fact that I wore a skirt. This is a rarity, and it felt good to dress like a girl. Really good. This gal has motivated me to shed my daily uniform and branch out a little. I just need to get some boots!
One of my complaints about Nate’s class (5th grade) is that they don’t get recess and only have two days of P.E. (What the ?? Whatever happened to the common sense idea of fresh air and exercise?) Since I was in charge those kids got three days of fresh air and exercise, and free motion scooter time. Did I ride a scooter – heck yeah!! Not on the skirt day though.
And the beauty of teaching a rotating class of 5th – 8th grade is that they are able to work independently, leaving me with time to take photos, read a book, and work on a papercutting!
