Unscheduled part 1.

As some of y’all know I’ve been substitute teaching at a high school in SW VA. I asked the administration to throw everything they had at me, because life is short, I am old, and I don’t have much time left to decide if I really want to teach.  So I not only get the math/science classes and Jr/Sr grades I’m aiming for, but also phys ed classes  and – sigh – 8th and 9th graders.  It’s what I asked for and I’ve been getting better at class management, working toward a professionally stable medium between unhinged pushover and unhinged nazi when it comes to in class discipline.
