I will be teaching all 12th grade English at a really great high school this fall.
Yup. English. No science. New school. Better school. GOOD school. It has its issues, but I can cope. Going from ghetto rats to snotty rich kids. I think I'm up for the challenge. :)
I'm a little nervous about teaching something I've never done before, but it will be easy to find the motivation. Not like trying to teach physics, for example. Which is one bullet I dodged by leaving the old school. Pre-AP no less. I did gain a certain appreciation for it towards the end of the last year I taught it, but it just took so much effort and I surely didn't like it or even love it.
So, now I'll get PAID to talk about books. How cool is that? Now I have to unearth our copies of 1984 and Brave New World so I can read them before I go back since they're my kids' summer reading assignment...
