Furlough days

My apologies for the lack of updates on this blog. Today was our first day back to school after having a wonderful week of catch-up-with-other-responsibilities (a.k.a. Spring Break).

A colleague warned me today that this will be the longest and most difficult stretch of the school year. Students are tired, we’re tired, and there aren’t any more long breaks until the end of the school year, unless…….

Our school district and union have struck a tentative agreement to cut five days of instruction from this current school year and seven next year. I know it’s not a good thing–I want my students to learn more–but I am secretly hoping that the union membership votes to go along with the plan. Voting will take place this week.
