The Cards You're Dealt

Teacher layoffs are this week...I'm getting really nervous, seeing as in this economic crisis, education budget cuts are pretty substantial... Even those seemingly secure are not really feeling all that secure these days. I'm trying to be optimistic, hoping I get dealt a good hand (and not a pink slip)... Wish me luck, I need it!

Just want to send xo and wish you luck with your teaching job. The most important job in this country should never be cut back..
Keep up the great work and this blog! So sweet..
xo, Penney

The best of luck! I agree with Penney... teaching shouldn't be a career that gets cut backs. After all, we still have the same number of kids. It only results in bigger classes, less individual attention... etc etc etc.

You are such a wonderful teacher and I'll be thinking of you this week. It's sad that people who are helping children move forward are getting laid off. Let me know if you need anything or a Greenlake walk to de-stress.

I'm sending all my luck your way which might not be much. The only thing I've ever won is a cup of Tootsie Rolls. Sometimes I find a heads up penny.
