I'm grandfathered into a K-8 generalist certifiate renewable after 3 years. This means I'm authorized to teach any subject.
I just found out that IF the county passes a temporary busness/income tax in May, and IF we get the No Child Left Behind grant I will get to be full-time next year. I'm .8 this year, plus I get to work 8 days for FREE (contract settlement).
The good news is that I will only have 18 art K-5 classes per week instead of 20 in 4 days (we lost 2 teaching positions through attrition), but I will have to teach Reading 1 period everyday. It's better than the 1/2 time art-1/2 time
something else I expected. So, I'm keeping my fingers Xed.

PS. Please pray for my brother who was sent to Barhain. He's a Capt. in the Navy reserves.
