Do I know some sort of secret loophole embedded deep in my contract that allowed me to spend more time at the pool while the rest of the staff was busy teaching? Well, kind of.
That part of the contract would deal with paternity leave. My wife and I welcomed our second daughter into the world on August 10th. Her name is Graylie and she's pretty awesome.

I was lucky enough to be able to spend the first month of school at home to help out with the new addition to my family.
Of course that means that I had to write a mess of sub plans and trust someone else to start the year for me. That alone was no easy task. All in all, I really enjoyed the extra family time and I know my wife appreciated the help.
Now I'm back to school. I'm one week in and getting back into the swing of things. New posts will be coming soon. There are a lot of changes this year with the addition of traveling related arts teachers, new projects, new technology, and continued creative learning. I'm looking forward to a great year!
