I have been substitute teaching, in hopes that it will help me find a teaching position. It can be, well, interesting to say the least. I sub in Salt Lake, Granite and Canyons Districts to stay busy. I have even started subbing in the dreaded middle school.
Last week I was in a fourth grade class. I was up at the board when I student saw a mouse. Now, if you know me, you know that I am terrified of mice. Terrified. I kept my cool - like a good teacher should, and kept the class calm. Then, they saw the mouse head to the back of the classroom. I told them to just ignore the mouse. Then, it headed to the area of the teacher's desk, where my purse laid on the floor. The students laughed and said that the mouse crawled in my purse (uckkkkkkkk! I mean how gross!) I do not think that the mouse actually crawled in my purse - I think they said that to be funny. Needless to say, it did take me a while to actually pick my purse up to check! Oh, so much fun!
