Employment whatsits 

Stopped by the district office to get the exact same fingerprinting that I had to get for the state. (sigh). Same computer scan and everything, but they insisted that they needed to do it again. Oh and same charge too.

I think I understand why one of my mentor teachers took such a hard line on out of pocket expenses.

Speaking of which, it's worth noting that Bush and the Republicans have raised taxes on teachers this year. There had been a deduction available for teachers for out of pocket expenses for the classroom. It expired and apparently reinstating it would jeopardize tax cuts for the wealthy. The same thing is also in effect in California, with Schwarzenegger also overseeing a tax increase for teachers.
