I cannot get over how much better i feel, just because of my new glasses. There are no headaches, no vertigo, no eyestrain. Who knew? It is the same life changing feeling i had when i got well-fitting bras in Milwaukee.
Subbed at Laurel Creek Elementary, in third grade. Really nice kids, really nice faculty. Great school culture. At recess, I talked with a teacher who said, that even after twelve years of teaching, he loved coming to school every morning. He was a mid-life career changer, like me, coming from the tech sector, Apple, to be exact.
It felt so natural to show up this morning at a different school in a different state. Third grade is third grade everywhere, I guess. This school reminded me of Osceola, with parents on campus at dismissal, and kids who were obviously well-cared for. Again, i had to establish my pack leader role, but these kids were so good that they could run the class themselves. So i let them.
