Yep, today was my last day subbing. I might sub now and then for particular teachers (like for Hubby or Firrecracker's kindergarten teacher...or...probably no one else.), but by and large I am done. Yeah! YEAH!! Double YEAH!
Most of the time when I was teaching full-time before the kiddos I liked teaching. Some of the time I loved teaching, and on a few bad days (but not many) I hated it.
I have never loved subbing. Occassionally I've liked it. Most days I've endured it, and some days I've hated it. Between Hubby and I we've subbed just about every subject and grade from kindergarten through high school. The only subject we can think of that we haven't subbed is Horticulture. (Yep, home ec, shop, special ed, science, math, English, Spanish, you name it.) And now I'm DONE!!!
I've been greatful for my teaching degree and experience many times, and it has come in handy the last few months to help ends meet between Hubby's graduation and his upcoming full-time employment as a chemistry/physics/science teacher...but I'm so happy to go back to being a full-time stay-at-home mom!! (Of course I really can't complain too much since Hubby has gotten a lot of sub calls lately so I could stay home.
I'll get to spend more time with these three goofballs and their Daddy.
become something like these. I've already got the bowl thing for the sink and a real faucet. I've been wanting to make one for the kids for ages. It almost seems too nice to use...but it's not wood...it's particle board. It's the perfect height to match the little pink cabinet my Grandpa made for us when we were girls.
