We rescreened our porch this summer and I have to say that I’m really loving it. I have been trying to spend as much time out here now that it’s relatively bug-free. Those roaches still find away onto the porch but Nutmeg is a good hunter. We even got a cute little bistro set from Ikea to replace the white plastic table and chairs. They were not comfortable at all. The bistro set, perfect for Sunday coffee and blog writing. I’d really like to get a glider out here. Gliders are my favorite!!
Work is going well. School started last week and after a few little hiccups, we are starting to settle in. I have to say that the past few years have been getting better overall. The interpreters have a home in the school. It’s great, we can store our books, dictionaries, professional development stuff, and have a comfy spot to plan for the classes. This is the first year in a long time that we’ve had all three grades of Deaf/Hard of Hearing at the same time. When the finish hiring people, we will have four interpreters at our school. Wow, the department is growing!
Next week, I have a meeting with the union, DTU, and the district to go over changes to the interpreter contract. Change is slow but it’s happening. This has been my goal for the past three years. It’s amazing to see it finally shaping up. Eat your heart out Norma Rae!
