EC: The "E" is for "Employed"

I got a job. Just in time, too, with less than two weeks before school starts.

I don't want to give too many details in a public post like this, because I wouldn't want to be recognized (hit me up on AIM or YIM if you're that curious about the details).

Here's what I can tell you:

I'm a reading teacher for a mix of elementary and middle school students (that's right - my designation is "EleMiddle." Heh.)

It's an inner-city school with 99% of the population below the poverty line. Many of the students are homeless, parentless, or penniless.

It's a very poor school in a very poor area during a recession, so I'll probably be laid off at the end of the school year, regardless of performance.

The school has no art, music, gym, recess, or extra-curriculars. These were all shut down because of low test scores.

The school itself is on the verge of being shut down by the government (depending on this year's test scores).

Cool. You will hit the school like a tornado. Its grades will shoot through the roof, the kids will become well-motivated, the arts courses will be re-established (if they're even necessary, since the kids with your encouragement will be self-motivated to do lots of extra-curricular arts stuff). I wish I was a pupil at this school, it'll be such a great place to be with the coolest teacher in the world there.Hope it goes well for you, Ele!
