Okay, so I got some good news this week that I would be remiss if I didn't mention at once and with utmost speediness for all of you who were sitting on the edges of your seats waiting to hear. What? That was just me? Right.
I remain employed.
I had my summative assessment today and my principal invited me to continue working there in the 2009-2010 school year. This means I can continue to feed my family the high-quality generic mac and cheese to which they've become accustomed. YAY!
It was a great review and I'm pleased. I'm also a tiny bit terrified that my life next year will be just as chaotic and busy as it was this year. But, hey, at least they're paying me.
In other great news...I get a FREE trip to Washington D.C. in June to tour our nation's capitol to help me be a better history teacher. I'll also get 3 free hours of graduate credit for the trip after I do some paper or other when I get back. And did I mention the trip is free? And so is the graduate credit.
I've never been to D.C. so I'm really excited. Of course, because I'm slightly mental, I've already started worrying about terrorist attacks, plane crashes, and Dupont Circle traffic. Yes, I realize how insane that makes me sound. Thanks for asking.
