no, no exclamation point.
i AM happy, of course.
wait, no, RELIEVED. "happy" definitely is NOT the word.
out of 45 teachers laid off in my district, i'm one of 8 who has been asked to return . . . so far.
approximately 20 more people will get off of the RIF list if/when a "renegotiated contract vote" goes through. after that, another 17 will remain on the list. then, IF governor brown obtains approval for the tax extension, then the rest may be called back at any time thereafter.
for my part, any small modicum of joy i might feel at being able to return to my teaching position next year is substantially subdued by my colleagues' absence.
