Teaching Pros:

  • Weekends and all major holidays off

  • 2 week Christmas vacation

  • 14 weeks of summer vacation

  • sending the "problem" kids home to their parents at 3:30 every afternoon

  • School Supplies

  • Wearing Jeans every Friday

Teaching Cons:

  • Catching every single bug/germ/virus that enters your room because you ran out of the antibacterial hand stuff.

Did the election (bulletin board) make you sick? I hope each party is equally represented! Sorry you work in a petri dish. And when did you not work on a weekend or during the summer? Still jealous of your jeans on friday!

Deb said...

I am so sorry....not a good way to start out. I had library aides blowing their noses and then using the barcode scanner..I was going to wipe that dang (LA term) thing off and I hooo...hope I am not next.

Hope you feel better....

Poor Julie!!! I'm thinking it's bad for us that have kids that go to school but it must really be bad for you!! Hope you are all better very soon!

Aw, what a way to start the year! Before I had my kids, I taught elementary school and it was like working in a plague ward! I was ALWAYS sick. Of course, now my wee-ones are the ones who infect me, but somehow it seems less annoying coming from them :)

Hope you're feeling better!
