Mrs. Earp spent her post-college time as a teacher in the Philadelphia School District. When our first child was born, she put career ambitions on hold to raise our little monsters. Her school was in a war zone, and day care would probably offset her salary. So, she became a stay-at-home mom.
Now that all the kids are in school, Mrs. Earp wanted to ease herself back into the game. Last year she obtained her clearances and background checks – apparently no one found out about that dead hooker – and started helping out at the kids’ grade school. This year, she’s been going twice a week to work with the computer class.
Yesterday, she received a call from the school, asking if she could come in today as a substitute teacher for the first grade.
Oh, and she is going to be paid for it.
So, I’ll have the entire house to myself on my day off. Well, I would have, but Julia is home sick. Figures.
