Tim now teaches 7th and 8th grade as well as high school. I have always thought that he would make a great middle school teacher. His personality just seems perfect for the kids. I was so happy when Tim told me after school on Monday that he loved the middle school students.
We have been adjusting to a new principal and counselor, but I think the change is going to be really good. The kids are a bit nervous about the new staff as well, but I tried to reassure them as much as I could.
I’m not going to go into detail about the school week, because we just worked all day long, but we did play pretty hard this weekend.
Saturday we slept in and took a sweet time getting to anything productive for the day. I finally finished organizing our furniture. We bought a treadmill, so we had to do some major rearranging to make things work. I feel so much better now that my house isn’t torn apart with a treadmill in the middle of one of the rooms.
Saturday evening we had a potluck at our neighbor’s, Eve. She invited the entire faculty. There were 17 people in her little apartment. I love teacher potlucks.
