First week down at the new school. Kids are chaotic, but I am happier. There is a ray of sunshine, a ray of hope.The school’s really supportive and … well…. it’s like I can start again, except slightly less stupid. So I still get the “new person” slack of effing a lot of things up, but…. I’ve already done it once, so my eff-ups are slightly less disastrous. Sweet…
My old school let ANOTHER teacher go today. She was much better than I, also TFA, also totally undeserving of this treatment in each and every way.
Spent the evening carving pumpkins with TFA folk, drinking spiked cider and hot chocolate, and playing charades.
