Now Teaching: Week -5

I will be coming back after a year away from teaching. There were nine weeks until the start of school (which is right after labour day) but any teacher who doesn’t come in at least once in the week prior to that (to figure out classroom setup, make photocopies, et cetera, all at no pay) is crazy. So if that’s “Week 0”, we’re at “Week -5”.
Previous INDEX Next

I’m currently on vacation. She who is my wife suggested Stratford a couple weeks ago, and as I came out of my depression I mused about returning to ConBravo, and nothing happened to mess that up. I have managed to avoid driving on the 401 thus far! Went to Stratford by coming down through Barrie, and visited my parents via Waterloo. Done 400 and 403 freeways though, and can’t avoid it tomorrow. Meanwhile, hotel key card never works on the first try, and I should get a new memory card for my camera, to stop having to delete old pictures.
