Another year is a lot more money than another semester. It hardly seems fair.
As for my school's review, I am one of those teachers. I'm the one piling the work on the kids so we look good.
It's not going to be a fun year.
You don't seem pleased about your core courses being changed. Too bad they didn't consult with people before making the changes.
I'm doing well. Very busy. Our school is being reviewed this year, so we're under a lot of stress to have everything absolutely perfect.
