Today was report card day. I was happy that all of my homeroom students passed the year. It was casual day but too hot for jeans so this is what I ended up with. Looking at the pictures, I'm really not digging it. I almost didn't post it. What was I thinking with the black shoes!

I found out I am switching classrooms next year so I started the moving process today. It feels like I am moving to the school ghetto. My new room is in the basement and it is dark and very dirty! It is going to take some work to make it cheery.
I also found out what I am teaching next year. Even though I have a history degree, I have taught grade 9 English for the past two years. This year I had three sections of grade 9 English and one section of grade 10 history. I much prefer the history and hope to move up to grade 11 and 12 history. I will have to wait at least another year for that move. Next year's teaching assignment includes three sections of grade 9 English again and one section of grade 9 social studies. Oih, that's a lot of fourteen-year-olds. I shouldn't complain though; my school district has massive cutbacks and layoffs planned for the fall. I feel pretty lucky to have my permanent contract and a guarenteed job. I just got my permanent contract in September; lucky timing!
