They still haven't hired a new history teacher so I have my advisory in the meantime.
I actually came up with a pretty decent 2 week project to tide us over until the break, after which, I hope to have the class relieved from me.
I have the kids making their very first resumes and they actually really enjoy it. I've been alternating days in the classroom with days in the computer lab. When they're on the computers, I let them play music and surf the web as long as they complete the assignment and hand in a printed document by the end of the hour. They're great at multitasking on the computer-- and trust me, I get it. I do the same thing myself all night long.
They have enjoyed the peer editing as well. Tomorrow they'll print out a final version and Wednesday I think we'll do mock job interviews. Thursday, if I know for sure that a new teacher is coming to take over my class, I'll throw them a little "going away" party.
I have officially been chosen for the per session after school dean position. This is from 4-8 per session hours every 2 weeks.
I'm already making 9 per session hours each pay period so this will be a nice addition.
