Day #1. Again.
So far, being on the substitute secretary list has not been too lucrative. It hasn't been stressful. But sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring brings its own special kind of tension into the day.
Yesterday the phone rang. Twice.
First call? Can I work from 12:45 - 4:00 on Thursday? Three and a quarter hours. Yes, I can. But three hours? At least if it is stressful, the day will go quickly.
Second call? The automated phoning system called at 9:20 p.m. ... I will be working a full day today.
Two different schools. Two first days. Two opportunities.
Two chances to make a good first impression.
Here I go. Again.
