I was surprised to get a call to work this morning. Mondays have been rather dead lately. But the continuation high school is back in session, so I shouldn't have been that surprised.
The continuation high school has been out the past three weeks for their fall break.
It's funny. Every year in July and August (for I usually end up subbing for them then) the students complain about having to go to school in the summer. I remind them that they get these nifty little breaks at different times during the year. Everyone else has to go to school in October. They don't.
My arguments don't help. However, I don't hear them complaining about getting a break now. I haven't even heard them complaining about having to come back. My guess is that I haven't been listening closely enough.
I'm covering the whole week in the government and economics classes. I've subbed for this teacher many times before, so I'm familiar with the routine. And they are familiar with me.
