For better or for worse, we belong to a category of teachers who do not get summers off. It's the nature of the business. We know that too.
This doesn't mean that at times we wouldn't like a day off here and there. We're all human. We need and want to do many things, aside from work. Unfortunately it isn't always that easy.
As a reminder, all teachers are to find substitutes for any time off requested. This is no easy feat in the summer months as sub teachers are very few and far between. It stinks. I promise I am working on it. Seriously.
With the lead up to year end (August 31) and the final transition from Connect to Aston, the office is very busy with a lot of different 'special' projects, on top of the day to day duties. For this reason, Dianne and I can't be considered as subs unless it really is an emergency situation.
If you have any suggestions on how or where to find subs, (thanks Mike for the info) please speak up!
