Tuesday February 20th

Back at school. Ugh. It sucks. I am dreading my 7th graders. I have got to figure out what I’m going to do with them. I have been teaching them the ecology unit from 6th grade, but I’m running out of material. I guess I will wrap it up this week and give them a test and move on to something else. I am hating my job right now. I am frustrated with it. I think this is sort of part of what I was feeling last year before I moved away. I was getting frustrated with the horribleness of the children’s behavior and I was getting tired of fighting it every damn day. Shit. Harlem sure wasn’t the answer to that fucking problem. Ha! Those kids were absolutely fucking awful. I want to start researching into what I can do besides this. I don’t know if I should go to school for that admin cert or not. I just hate to spend all that fucking money and then not be able to get a job. I feel like I have just as good a chance of getting a job I am currently qualified for as I do an admin. I need to look into that grant stuff my friends are doing. Maybe I could get the reading specialist endorsement. I think I might be able to get it for free. 

Later, that same day…

Okay, I contacted Georgetown College about the reading specialist idea, and you can’t get it stand alone- it has to be part of  a Master’s program. No thanks. If’ I’m gonna do 30 hours, I’d be stupid not to get admin. If I could have gotten the reading specialist in 12 hours and the district to pay for it, I would have done it- maybe.
