I have 2 more days at my current teaching job and then it's summer break. After 8 years with this current district, I will now call Academy 20 School District home from now on. I am very excited about this move. I simply no longer agree with the direction in which Woodland Park is heading in with regard to my students and I can no longer support it. I got a very good impression from the new administration during the interview and, since then, have heard amazing things about them. I have a half day tomorrow at Woodland but the principals at the new school I will be at (Timberview) asked me to come down for a tour. They also asked if I would come down on their last day next week (my vacation) and be introduced to their staff and join them for lunch so that on the first day, I would feel more a part of the team. Can't wait.
And finally...I don't know that I have ever blogged about an issue with the green Subaru. She is Ole Reliable. 274,000 and going strong. She recently started giving me trouble in the way of overheating. I do not know yet if it's truly overheating or if I am dealing with a gauge, sending unit, or wiring issue (which is the way I'm leaning right now based upon the symptoms). I have some stuff on order and will be working on it this weekend and will post more about that. At this point, I feel like I simply have to see 300,000 on the odometer so this has to get sorted. People that know me think I will run right out and get a new car with this new job but I really do like the green Subie and would like to hang on to it for another year or two. I have also thought that it would make the perfect rallycross car and I've been interested in exploring that for a while now but I don't know if I want 4 cars in the driveway. Shuffling 3 is bad enough.
That's it for now. Very excited for this next chapter in life and to see what it brings. Thanks for checking in.
