No this post has nothing to do with Christmas.
We've reached that glorious time in the school year where students get dismissed at 1pm (normally it's 3:15 or 4:00 depending on the grade). I can't tell you how happy this makes me. And don't forget, I've only been there for three weeks. I can only imagine how thrilled the regular teachers are who've been in school since March.
The school year ends on December 15th. I'll be filling in for at least one more week. Emphasis on the words 'at least'.
Not that I mind. More hours=more money=more traveling.
