My new Job

So, I got a new job a couple of weeks ago. My official title is the "At-Risk Assistant" at Snow Canyon Middle School. Basically, a few students get the privilege of taking Study Skills... a class where you get to just do homework. So, I teach 3 study skills classes a day. I get to be the baby-sitter/mom of a bunch of teenagers. I email their teachers to get work, I yell at them when they don't get their work done... its super fun! And when they are all quietly working, I get to play on the computer and read and cut coupons.... it's great!
Pros:
  • I really do like this job. I like teaching and I have a great bunch of kids!
  • It gets me back into education... I'm getting my foot in the door. I'm working on renewing my license and I'm hoping to find a part time teaching job next year.
  • I don't work weekends and I always have the same vacations as the kids.
  • I don't work nights... I get to snuggle with my kids when it's time to go to sleep.
  • I have a routine... I get up and exercise (most days), get the kids ready for school, etc.
  • The kids get to stay home with Ryan and Grandma.
Cons:
  • I miss my kids. I work from when I drop Brenner off at school (and MWF Joren off at preschool) until about 3:00.
  • I don't have as much time to get projects done... but I have plenty of time to think about them and write lists of what I want to get done:)
  • I don't get paid much:( but I do get paid.

Sounds like a great job for the time being. I hope a teaching job opens up for you.

Love the new pictures of your boys on the side of your blog.

And, my Mother is not happy with you...you should've taken your boys over on Halloween. Just giving you a warning next time you see her. ;)

I wish we could've talked longer the other day.
Jealous of your routine or maybe just that you can stomach exercizing. I hate to do it, but I think it's time to take the wretched activity on. I'm glad your kids get a bedtime routine.
