I've been talking to people in the church about serving our community in whatever way they can. The Superintendent of Schools recently spoke to us about the greatest needs in the school district as well.
This past week I received a call from the Principal of the High School. He asked if I would be interested in filling in for one of their math teachers who is going to be on Maternity Leave until the end of this semester. My wife and I talked about the effects on our family and the church. Another friend and I prayed and talked about it.
I spent the day today in the classroom with the teacher who is due to have a baby girl on December 15. It should prove to be interesting filling in for her for the next 5 1/2 weeks or so. I've never taught High School Math before...... but that is where the Engineering Degree should kick in!
I'm sure that there will be plenty of fodder for posting coming up - if I have time to do anything besides study for next Sunday, teach math (both at the High School and home), grade papers (both places), live life with my family, etc.
