I taught in our school district for the last five years. In those five years, I taught at 3 middle schools. I started at a new school in 2005, 2008, and 2009. All three times, the school was under construction as I moved in my things and prepared to start teaching.
This year, I didn’t go back to school. I’m now a stay-at-home wife (at least for a few more weeks) and guess what? Our house is under construction (or at least, we’re getting some work done on it.) I’m listening to construction noises right now, just like I did at those three schools during the first week of teacher preparation before the kids came. (Nik is at school right now, doing just that.)
Sense a pattern emerging?
