Spring Break leftovers

1. A wonderful blogger made mention that there are only ten weeks left in this school year. It was like the clouds opened and the sun shone through.
2. I was casually reading a great blog So You Want to be a Teacher, about 10 reasons to quit and 9 reasons to stick when #2 reached up and slapped me. I hate my subject material. I HATE TEACHING GEOGRAPHY. It's out. I guess I am a historian at heart and physical geography bores me to tears (It could also be freshmen). I feel like I am betraying years of National Geographic subscriberhood.
3. I have found the world's best roast chicken recipe. Today I made a roast turkey with it and can barely keep myself from going back to the fridge for more.
4. I seriously need a poster of this for my classroom.
5. And while having a hot shower, bathroom and kitchen in a cabin does not necessarily qualify me to have "camped", I did make a lovely fire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows and got some much needed get away time here.

Yikes! I don't want you to leave the entire teaching profession because of your class assignment. Maybe you can talk with administrators and see what they can do, or else start looking for another job...

I think it's about time for me to write a few articles about job searching. Thanks for the "great blog" comments there!

Leaving teaching has never been a thought but I am definitely hoping for an assignment change.

Haha.. I'm glad I made #1 on your list! If you can make it, I can too!!!
