I was a bit puzzled when I logged onto the substitute assignment system last night to discover a job offering for today as I already had an assignment for Friday afternoon. I had assumed that the computerized system wouldn’t allow double assignment bookings for the same day.
After yesterday’s fiasco, I checked to see if my previous assignment listing for Friday was still active. It was!
It was then I noted that new assignment was a half day MORNING assignment for BAND at the middle school.
If I took this new morning assignment, I would have about 50mins travel time between schools. That was more than enough time since the two schools were less than two miles from each other. This was the first time I’ve been able to bookend two half day assignments for the same day
It made for an interesting experience. Imagine eighty-two middle school band kids followed by nine elementary SpecEd students in one day!
It WAS a day of contrasts!
