Today, is the second day of inservice/training for teachers, but I am not there. I am working the polls. I was up and at the fire station by 6:05. We got the signs out and waited on the clock to hit the magic hour....7:00. Today we are voting on a one cent sales tax so we can keep a hospital in the county. This has been pretty controversial and I am interested to see how the voters turn out. I guessed that only about 75 of the registered voters would show...we actually had 125....but the 125th one did not get to vote....she showed up at 7:01 and the polls were already closed. We registered 124. I enjoy the social time with Sherry, Louise, and Kelli. I learn a lot about what is happening in Rock Mills. After the polls closed we took care of business at hand and then Sherry and I took our materials to Wedowee. I got home right at 8:45. It was a long day. Sleep came easy for me and I believe I was out by 9:30. This prep week of school takes a lot out of me.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
