Just when I think I finally have a routine, things change. The curriculum standards need to be updated and I have been working on my report to submit to the hood council.
My teaching staff is doing excellent work as always. There have been a few class research projects going on, which meant lots of speeches
and lots of research in the library.
I'm not naive enough to think that only research happens there. I'm aware that's where relationships are made official and kisses are passed.
Also where bullying occurs
and I have to step in to remind them that the school has a no tolerance policy against bullying. Thankfully this time, it was an honest mistake. It was simply two friends rough housing. Which earned them both some extra after school detention time dusting the library shelves.
Our students thankfully are not falling behind and many of them graduate with more credits then they need.
I know that this is due to the hard work of my teachers, so I try to make sure that they know I appreciate them.
I usually cover lunch duty so that they can eat their meals in peace and I slip little motivational notes and muffins on their desks in the morning as well.
I am looking to expand our staff again. We need a permanent gym teacher, most of the time the kids stand there idly. I have to direct them to try out the different equipment and games.
Only then will they disperse to work out on the treadmills, punching bags or play a game of basketball.
We also need a permanent art teacher, I don't know how much guidance they're getting from me telling them to paint something. Hopefully, I can find one or two sims to do all the elective classes including the trade skills classes like shop and home ec.
Our extracurricular activities are expanding. The debate team recently made it to regionals.
I admit, our team was stellar. We have some great members who get their practice getting out of assignments with their teachers.
All that practice was great since we got first place! I'm so proud of them.
