this past week, i got to work 3 days as a TOC. one of the days was spent at the ice rink as the PE teacher. each grade group would spend an hour on the ice and i walked around putting out fires. (yes, walked. i didn't wear skates.) i can't remember the last time i was that cold - brrr...thankfully i was able to thaw with a half hour lunch break. but after not working, it's a whole different pace to be back with students. so this week was a good start to my february that my bank account will appreciate - now if we can keep this up.
