on a staff of 20ish. One because a family member is seriously ill, another because he got hit by a car this morning (he did more damage to the car than it did to him, but still, he had to go to the hospital to get a few things straightened out), and two for sickness. That’s a lot of classes to be covered.
In other news, I spotted something I’ve never seen before that I can remember in 8 years in NYC, a truly rare beast: a substitute teacher. Mind you, this sub had showed up at our school mistakenly and was really on his way to a similarly-named high school, but still! Get out your binoculars, folks, you won’t see this one every day! Needless to say, my principal gave him her card.
