So I promised Mrs. Nix that I would look into changing things up.
I wasn’t exactly specific, was I?
Gotta admit, I didn’t realize right then how open-ended ‘changing things up’ is. But I like it…
Anyway, I don’t want to alarm poor Mrs. Nix with my being ‘different’. I would just as soon stay off her radar–like all the other years–where she pretty much just tolerated me as long as I followed the ‘schedule’.
For now, I guess I’m on her radar. I was surprised she sauntered out to our rural setting to begin with.
Questions: Did someone alert her to our ‘rebellious’ ways? Or did she just follow her ‘Spidey-Sense’? Or did she actually have a question for me that she forgot to address?
Elsewhere on the teaching front…
Beth Hansen is watching me like a hawk.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she kept a dossier on me, though extra work isn’t exactly her strong suit. She’s just that kind of obsessively observant kid.
**I might need to put a bell on her so I know her whereabouts.
On the other hand, speaking of Spidey-Sense, this kid knows when I’m scrambling and seems to show up when I need saving.
