Today, I made my debut as a substitute teacher at the local high school. I was a little nervous when, upon seeing that her regular teacher was not there, I heard one girl say “Yes!” under her breath. But when the movie started, her eyes glazed over and I didn’t have any trouble with her.
So, one movie, one group project (and some of the students actually worked on it), study hall, and lunch duty. That was it for the day. Nothing exciting, for sure, but there will be a paycheck from it at some point.
And at least it’s not the crummy doctors’ office job.


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
