    Is it wrong to know we have 37 days left, with 3 of them as half days for final exams?

    Our final day this year is June 25th. My classroom will be like a sauna the last few weeks and the students and teacher will just love it.

    Our last day's 6/10, but next year, our district's changing the calendar and starting TWO WEEKS EARLIER!?! Shorter summer, and it'll be much hotter for the first part of the school year, but we'll be done before June starts. Ugh.

    Now 32 days left...

    UT starts "layoffs across all campuses" next week, which is kinda nerve wracking. I survived the last round of them in December AND I'm listed as teaching a class in the fall (they haven't renewed my full-time contract yet. dammit), so i'm wondering if i'm at risk or what. It's a crappy situation as our Pres is focusing on turning the university into a "product" that is medical/tech driven, leaving out any notion of the arts and humanities. It's assinine. We're offering FREE enrollment for students with high GPA's and our enrollment is really high for next year. so, how this *** figures that UT can deliver a quality education with overstuffed classes and understaffing is beyond me.

    I've talked to my superiors and bosses and they say that they can't imagine me NOT returning next year as a full-timer, but until I get a full-time schedule, i'm not holding my breath. It's not their fault at all, they're at the mercy of the system just like myself.

    Needless to say, i'm sending out apps ALL over the country. Meh.

    Also: Toni Morrison spoke here on friday and I guess slammed his ideas in front of a few thousand attendees; sorry I missed it.

    Yesterday, my wife had called here aide to prepare for today's happening in their classroom. Somehow, the conversation progressed off topic and it was established that her aide and I went to school together. As a matter of fact, we were in the same second and fourth grade classes. I hadn't met her aide this year, and since she's been twice married and divorced, her last name wasn't familiar to me at all. Weirder still, she lived in Spain the same time I did! Strange coincidences! What do you call this, karma?

    Only if it's in a complete sentence and includes the question in your answer.

    Unless I'm greatly mistaken, author Toni Morrison is not a dude.

    Our last day of Standardized testing was today. Woo hoo!

    Today our governor announced a half percent pay cut for all teachers in the months of May and June. That translates to $75 dollars being deducted from each check in those two months.

    On top of that, teachers are being required to take 10 hours off in what the governor called "flexible furlough," between June 1 and Dec. 31.
