scared for her mama
I'm on track break. Teachers on track break or summer break in my district have the opportunity to substitute to earn extra money. I was scheduled to sub for a 5th grade teacher this past week. Stephanie expressed her concern for me and asked me how I was going to handle 5th graders when I couldn't handle 4th graders. (I taught 4th grade for 8 years until I switched to 2nd grade just a few years ago.) I told her that it wasn't that I couldn't handle the 4th graders ~ I just chose not to anymore. I relayed my conversation with Stephanie to Suzanne, who then told Kevin ~ the 5th grade teacher. He left me a note to tell Stephanie that he's afraid every day!
