I taught 5th grade this year. Next year I'm going to be teaching kindergarten. It's obviously a big change, especially considering it's my second year, which is kind of the crunch year... it's when the district has to decide if they want to... well, it's not exactly giving me tenure, but it's close enough. I was kind of freaked out at first, but since then I've warmed to the idea. I mean, yeah, they cry and puke and can't tie their shoes, but they're cute! Most of the time, at least. And I'm going to be teaching in the afternoon, with another teacher in the same room teaching a kinder class in the morning, so I can see what she does and get her tips and info and help and everything.
I'm also taking a couple of trainings this summer, and since another elementary in the district starts in July, I'm going to go in there for the first week at least and observe. So I won't be going in completely blind, at least.
I possibly have jury duty tomorrow. When I called in, they said I was on phone standby. Which means I call them at 11:30am and they tell me if they need me at the courthouse by 1pm. Pphhhfff. Yeah, cause it's just around the corner. Not.
After school - after we got out and then I spent some time packing and taking things down - I swung by the bookstore and, lo and behold, there was Kushiel's Justice! Which wasn't going to be out for another week. Yay! I bought a couple more by Dan Simmons, as well. That guy is cracktastic.
