2 of them contacted me in January. Both of the people who contacted me from those districts no longer work in their positions.
And the people who have replaced them apparently don't know how to answer their phones or return messages.
So now I am trying to decide if I should just look elsewhere (outside of education). Grrrrr. How come everyone says that schools are desperate for teachers and I am a teacher desperate for a school?
Thanks for listening. I will go fill out another application now.

Like tomorrow we are going RAFTING! Man, I like this grad school thing. :) It is our last day so we will spend the afternoon floating down the river. Apparently there aren't really any rapids so we really will just be floating. Good times.
Then I will be driving Rachel home to Idaho. Can't wait to see all my Idaho & Utah peeps. And to eat at Sonic, Craigo's and Fong's. And shop at Porter's and Artco. And go to the Rexburg temple.
Ellensburg has been fun. But I am ready to leave. I have sneezed AT LEAST once everyday while I have been here. Maybe I am allergic to communal showers. Or learning. Or my roommate. Ha!

We have gone out to dinner as a cohort (the 10 people in our class) every Thursday for the last 2 weeks. Last week we went for half price appetizers at a place called Roadhouse. This Thursday we went to the Palace Cafe. They had 50 cent taco Thursdays.
Here is the 50 cent taco. I hope they don't charge much more than that on other days. It ain't worth it.
I had a bunch of free movie passes so we have been taking advantage of them. Last week we saw Hancock (2 thumbs up) and Get Smart (2 thumbs down). Yesterday we saw Momma Mia (2 thumbs up). I am excited for the X Files movie this weekend! Hopefully I can find someone in Utah or Idaho to go see it with me. I have a free ticket!!

I got accepted into a Master's program at Central Washington University which is located in Ellensburg, Washington. Literally the center of Washington. It is an online program made especially for teachers. So to lighten the work load during the school year, they have a 3 week on-campus session in the summer. That is where I am. I attend class each day for 3 weeks and will have completed 3 classes!! Next summer, I will come back to Ellensburg and complete 3 more classes.
So in 3 weeks, I will return to Canada.

The shower room. Which is literally a room of showers. I am scared. I don't normally shower so close to perfect strangers.
Or even my loved ones. If you want to have a shower party in the shower room, there is seating available for 3.
This makes me so grateful I didn't live in the dorms at all during my many years of matriculating.
