YES !

i had a meeting with Human Resources and the Union today.

And it is official

i am staying at my school next year !!! (see me do the happy dance)

Now this is where it gets a little confusing......

i am staying but everyone i have worked with this year (well except for 3 teachers and about 70 kids) are leaving.

See if you can figure this out.............

They are moving 200+ kids and 17+ teachers and other assorted staff out of the building and moving 200+ kids and 17+ teachers and other assorted staff in. Does that make any sense to you ??? doesn't to me or anyone else around here.

The 200+ kids and the 17+ teachers and assorted staff are going to be integrated into other schools. My staff ......... well ........... most of them will be declared "excess" except for the one tenured educator i have......... and they have no idea where they are gonna put her.

Come September i get to face a whole mess of new kids and families and staff....

But my office will be the same........ my space will be the same........... and i will be.......... praise the powers that be .......... exactly 10 minutes from home. After 15 years of driving 30 minutes one way to work this is a total PLUS.

i am a very happy camper.

The only thing that would make me happier - an early Spring.
