well well well

I don't know what hoodoo trickery you pulled flist, but somehow I have
become the long-term sub for 10th grade Algebra 2! I'm not too happy about
why I'm subbing (the teacher's daughter has a tumor in her leg; this is made
worse by the fact that I went to HS with her and was good friends with her
for years), but I AM glad to have this opportunity. When I first spoke to
the principal back in August about subbing in the Upper School he told me
they rarely had subs, and helped me get set up subbing in the Middle School
instead. He Facebooked me (this was super hysterical in and of itself) to
ask if I'd be interested, and I met with the teacher today to get everything
set up. I start on Monday!!

I am super scared but also excited. I'm used to intimidating the Middle
Schoolers with my height (in heels) and dead-eyed stare, but 10th graders
are taller than I am! I do not care for this. One bit.

Well, I'm watching the Pride and Prejudice with Hot Mr. Darcy (Matthew
Macfayden) and he's just getting to the part where he's all wet and hot.
Ciao, bellas.

If you had been my 10th grade teacher, I would have been very very excited. Perhaps not in a way that boded well for you, true, but still. Don't break their little minds if you can help it!

Yay! Seeing good job-things happen to friends of mine make me happy. Didn't know that about Kim though, that really sucks.

At any rate, go and scare the shit out of some 10th graders- I know you can do it! And tell Mr. Shaulis I say hi. :D

(also, I will now take the time to giggle incessantly about your post following this. Heehee.)

I find high schoolers waaaaay easier to sub for than middle school. As a matter of fact, I will only sub for high school now. The middle schoolers are still hyper and always trying to test you but the high schoolers are more concerned about appearing "cool" and mature. Good luck!

Thanks! My plan is to be the weird teacher - bright nail polish, bright sneakers. I figure I'm 23, I should live it up while I can. XD
