......although it feels like it! I think I heard we're up to 26 inches of snow - that's a lot of snow!
I'm still here, plugging away.
This next week will be a busy one as I have a Middle School Concert tomorrow night, Musical rehearsals after school on Tues. and Fri. and Elementary Parent Teacher Conferences Thurs. night. Next Saturday, I probably will not be able to move!
Had a discussion with my Superintendent the other day. I still have a job next fall HOWEVER, it will be doing what I am now = Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade Vocal (not including every day teaching, that's 5 concerts a year, plus the musical, plus Honor Choirs, etc. )
WITH THE ADDITION of:
Teaching 5th - 8th grade Band. So add what I'm doing now to starting beginning band students, literally running all 5 concerts, prepare students to march at Homecoming Parade, do Honor Bands, and add another concert in there for the "Band Extravaganza"). In essence I would be doing a 2 person/2 full-time job that they are cutting down into one.
I could continue what I am doing now for 1/2 the pay.
I'm getting very tired of having the "rug pulled out from under me" every spring - this is year number 3 now. I don't know if this and past event's are God's way of saying it's time to move on to a different profession, or if I'm being tested.
Thankfully I have some time to search for another position if I choose to, or look into another career - either way, it just plain stinks.
And, someday - this will turn back into a crafty and happy blog :)
Thanks for stopping and take care! - Elizabeth
