    :woohoo: :woohoo:

    Glad you are back to work, Kadi!!!

    As for the super-gluer, that is a typical teenage boy prank... even when my hubby taught at an exclusive prep school, that didn't mean the kids were better behaved; that kind of prank happened ALL the time. *sigh*

    Right now, I've taken a bit of a financial loss since we lost more salary striking than we'll get in retro pay, but next year's salary will be better, so I guess overall it's turned out ok.

    BUT: I was really happy to see the kids today & most of them were really glad to be back (except the turkey who went around the school last night super-gluing all the hallway door locks. Guess 3 weeks off wasn't enough for him/her?!! We got in anyway & without the kids knowing it took over an hour for the custodian to chip it all out!)

    I bet you are glad it is over!

    I went through a teacher strike about 1 1/2 years ago. Our whole province was walking the picket lines. It was very emotional. In our district, we ended up loosing more than we gained. I hope you had more luck where you teach! :woohoo:
