My children’s Spring Concert is Tuesday. I am not sure what the highlight is going to be. Each grade has a really special moment. The only aspect of this concert I have total confidence in is that the students are going to shine once the curtain opens. Everything between the performances is a bit shaky, but isn’t that always the case? Please, reassure me. That is normal, right? Links below the fold.
The day after our concert is the kindergarten moving up ceremony, which is going to be cuter than cute. Wednesday is a “Teachers Only” day followed by the school’s retirement party. Then most of the teachers have a long weekend to recharge for a three week extended year program in fulfillment of our federal School Improvement Grant. I’m exhausted already!

- “Frankly, however, I will say that the process of looking for work as a teacher at charter schools has felt considerably more professional to me than looking for work at district schools. I think this is in large part because with charter schools they and I have the ability to evaluate each other on the merits, rather than having to scramble at the last minute just to match a vacant classroom with an increasingly desperate applicant.”
