April 20th subbing

I had a good day at the Veritas alternative high school in Redford today. The students were respectful, although some were too chatty, but the day went well. My job is to supervise and keep them on task as well as possible. Almost all the work is on the computer. I drew several of the students while I was sitting there (forgot my book!) and – since I draw better than the average person (although by no means like a professional artist) – it brought immediate respect from the students. πŸ™‚ I let the students take a picture of my pictures of them – and promised to drop off the original copies after I’ve turned them in for a grade. πŸ™‚ One student asked if I would draw his car – and left his phone with me so that I could work on it. I haven’t drawn a car before – at least – not trying to make it look real.

The principal said that a teacher is leaving on maternity leave very soon and wanted me to fill in for the rest of the school year. I think I’d like that – I like the kids and I like the fact that they are not falling through the cracks and dropping out, but rather are working on getting their diplomas in a non-traditional setting. However, I am not free until after May 6, so – we’ll see what happens. I already have about ten dates after that scheduled, also.
