For me, all of the above are true (except that school has not been blown to pieces).
School is out! For those of you that don't know, I am not returning to the classroom next year. In my sister's words, 'I'm retiring.' Unlike many of my teaching friends, this is by choice and not by pink slip.
This year was miserable in many ways. I won't go into the details, but I decided it was time to quit. I have found another job. I will be teaching/tutoring at a Sylvan Learning Center here in Montgomery. I have already started tutoring, and I really enjoy it so far. I just have to brush up on my Algebra II and Trigonometry skills. I will also be working there this summer. But don't worry, I'll get off by 12:30. This still allows plenty of afternoon pool time.
Hopefully I will return to the classroom sometime in the future. For now I'm off to celebrate with some type of drinky-drink.
