Tom has been subbing here almost every day. Yesterday morning he was in a class of junior English; they're studying The Jungle. He said that they were very well-behaved, which surprised their actual teacher.

Then she told me that she'd told the kids that "Mr. Tom" would be subbing, and one said, "I like him!"

He's off to a good start. He'll take over the copy room this afternoon while I'm at a meeting for some online testing that I have to attend even though I haven't been told just what this testing is and why I have to go.

I just do what I'm told.

Hey, Tom could do the six month "career switcher" program and become a certified teacher! It's offered at the county school board office, through a university, but I don't know what it costs. You have to already have a college degree and at least five years of any work experience, so he would qualify. I guess this might not be the best time to get hired, though, with all the cutbacks, so maybe subbing is the way to go. I'm glad that it's going well for him.
