New Old Job

I have a new job, sort of. Really it's the same job, as a different classification. As of today, I'm no longer a "substitute" teacher, I am a "contract" teacher. Until Christmas break, anyway. The biggest differences are that I know I'll be working every school day, and I have paid holidays. In fact, the first holiday is this coming Friday -- "Admission Day" in Hawaii!

More about the class later. In short, it's 8th grade math and... well, does anybody remember that old TV show, "Welcome Back, Kotter?" There's even a kid with an honest-to-gosh afro in homeroom.
