Wow, long time no posting! This week I took a substitute job that will last for the next 6 weeks or so. It's at a nearby middle school, in their library. I love books, reading and anything like that, so this is great for me.
The school is way overcrowded, and not in the most affulent area, and many of the kids are reading far below grade level. I have been pleasantly surprised by the behavior of most of the students. Middle school students have such a bad reputation in that department, and a few of them deserve it, but most of them are fine.
This week we will be testing the incoming 6th graders to determine their reading level, so we can help them check out the appropriate books. Last week I learned to give the tests. They are on the computer, but still have to be monitered. Once that's all done, the students can actually begin checking out books!
