What a long strange summer it has already been! It hasn't felt much like a break yet, but I am starting to settle into a new summer routine. We drove back from Virginia on Monday. It is about 12-13 hours by car and we are getting pretty good at the drive. When Kurt goes up for work, he will fly, but with all the kids and the supplies we are still taking back and forth, it made more sense to drive.
With the new job, I am working this summer, but it is a minimal amount. I have two mornings a week scheduled in the office during June and then I'll bump it up to three mornings a week during July. So far I am doing most of the normal summer work that I would have done on my own. What a nice change to pace to have them offering to pay me to do work. That isn't something that often comes up for teachers. In addition to college advising, I am also still handling gifted, homeroom and new teachers. This week I started on the gifted curriculum and paperwork planning. Next week I will jump into the homeroom lessons.
