Ahhhhh,,,it sure feels great knowing I am free for the summer. I LOVE Sweet summertime. Yes , yesterday was my last day. It was bittersweet because my principal is also retiring too. He is the best principal that I have ever worked under.
Also another bitter blow. My other supervisors at the Board have decided that they are going to pull us out of our schools and stick all the Attendance Officers in a building together. They are only into numbers now. They want more petitions being filed in court than what we have been doing. So I guess we will all be crammed together in a building with the bosses standing over us making sure we are pumping out petitions. Because its the numbers that count,,not the children, or at least thats how I am feeling right now.
Needless to say I am very unhappy about this whole scenerio. I Love the school that I am out. I have been there 2 years and its a really great school, and I have made some wonderful friends there. But thats the way our system works. Try it a mere 2 years and not give it a chance to work, then shake it all up again. Its assine!!!
So I have to sit all summer wondering what my future will be like in August. I am just going to try to forget it and have fun, but the thought will still be in the back of my mind.
Last night was a real blast! We had our end of the year Karoake party for the faculty and staff. We have it a swimming and tennis club that is close to the school. Everyone gets to loosen up and have fun after a long, hard year. I wasn't brave enough to Karoake,,but it was so fun to see everyone else up there being crazy. Alot of them had a few drinks and they were singing away and dancing. It was just a real fun time.
This afternoon I am going to go see my close friend who use to live next door to me for so many years. She lives several cities away from me now so I will spend the night and we will stay up late talking and laughing. I will be back tomorrow and have more to post then.
I am leaving this post with a final dedication to my fave principal ,,,Burro Bob!!! This is a pic of him when he dressed up for our Homecoming this past school year. We are going to miss you, Burro Bob, you are the Greatest Burro Leader!!!!
