This is not as bad as I feared it might be. I'm working a "Bridge Academy" because my genius principal figured out how to afford it, and getting to know the incoming 9th graders is actually pretty nice. Obviously, the kids who would come voluntarily over their summer vacations tend not to be the hard cases, so it's low-key and enjoyable.
I wish I could say the same for the teachers who are teaching the credit recovery classes. It just seems to be more of what didn't already work the first time. Attendance is spotty, motivation is nil, what have you. I don't know who to feel worse for, the teachers or the kids.
So far, working at least part of the summer seems to work for me. How about you? Who's spending at least some of their summer on the great per-session payroll? Or am I a chump who should be sleeping till noon and chilling at the beach?
