Craft: Picture Holder

at 4:59 PM 1 comments
During the summer I work as a director at a day camp. I've worked with some of my staff for almost 6 years now and I wanted to do something nice for them at the end of summer. I decided to make picture holders and fill them with photos from the summer.

The Many Faces of Me

This is me

An Interview!

at 5:17 PM 0 comments
I got an e-mail from a school I hadn't even applied to. They wanted a .5 RLA teacher. Their other interviewees had found the area too rural. They had a 9/10 English class, an 11/12 English class, Drama and yearbook/journalism classes available. How 4 classes counted as .5 I have no idea. Most of the schools I'd heard of before had 6 periods a day. I'd make 18,000 a year with benefits. All this was in the e-mail they sent me. I read desperation between the lines. I almost said no! I was looking for a full-time job.

Mom said I should agree to the interview, at least for practice.

Who am I?

Hello. My name is Nyssa.

I'm a lot of things, and I've been a lot of different things in my life. I tend to relate to different parts of my upbringing at different times, so I won't even get into that right now.

What this blog is about is ...the middle of nowhere.

This past September I got a part-time job teaching in the middle of nowhere (or as near to there as makes no matter).

I'll start by backtracking and telling the story as it happened. I'll also post about lessons, classroom management, and the random musings I get while driving my hour commute to and from school every day.
I may also post things that happen in my life out here, crafts I make, or books I read.
