Four More Days

It is the weekend for me. Sort of. I had to take tomorrow off for that funeral, so I will not be back at school tomorrow.

The election for funding education is in four days now. It's on May, 18. I am feeling a little stressed. It feels like in education I am always having the rug pulled out from under me. I have had a good feeling (and by that of course I mean the polls I have been following and my own investigations have led me to believe) that this measure will pass. Now that the hour is drawing near, my stress is making me lose that feeling of security.

I will be okay jobwise (by which I mean having a job) for another year even if this measure fails, BUT imediately if it fails it will mean the difference between an easy and fun end of the year and a super stressful end of the year. Ultimately if it fails, it will cost me my job security for next contract year.

I am on the homestretch for finishing all the end of year tasks if I will be in the same position next year. I haven't even scratched the surface if everything is changing AGAIN. I'll vote, but that is about all I can do.

Good luck! I can't get to grips with the idea that the wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world, home to Harvard and MIT, can't afford to pay its teachers!
