My Supplier

I've resumed substitute teaching again at my favorite school.  I've gone on and on before about this school, so I won't go into details now other than to say it's a 10-minute drive from my house, great students and kind staff.  I feel at home when I walk into this building.

And now, I have yet another reason to love this school. 

I have a supplier. 

When I taught there last Monday, one of the students came up to me and presented me with a package of fruit snacks.  After questioning her thoroughly to make sure it wasn't supposed to be part of her snack OR her lunch, I graciously accepted her gift and confessed my love for fruit snacks.  Not gonna lie - when the school day was over, I indulged and those things were seriously delicious.

Yesterday I taught in that same classroom again and while still in the hallway before the school bell rang, she presented me with another bag of fruit snacks!  I questioned her again and told her she didn't need to give me anything.  However, I also know that it's important to be thankful and honor the gift given, so I let her know I appreciated it and I would enjoy them.

She went on to tell me that from now on, anytime she knows I am going to be her teacher, she will bring me a package of fruit snacks.



  1. Amber, did I miss when you went back to work? How is that transition working for you and Feven? I am super anxious about that big change for E and I!

  2. I'm subbing only casually...which this time meant 5 days one week and 2 the next! Nothing like jumping right back in. :) It was easier than I thought, and really good for both Feven and I. I missed her, but I also love to teach.

  3. I just got a maternity leave substitute job for November/December. Either A) it will be HUGE help pre-Christmas b/c since I am certified after 10 days the daily pay goes way up or B) Well it would be a "Hail, Mary!" Miracle but I figure if I keep taking jobs Murphy's law is bound to come in effect and I would get a referral and not be able to keep my commitment. But I will just put my money on A). Super excited to be a 6th grade teacher for 6-7 weeks!
