"30 Schools In 30 Weeks"
My adventures as a Gypsy going from school To school in a futile search for a real teaching position.

I was assigned to Townsend Harris High School and was treated wonderfully by students, staff, and yes, even the administration. In my seven weeks at the school, I cannot recall one negative issue that would bring the school environment down.
The classes I covered were a pleasure as the students were respectful, diligent in completing their assignment, and never did a student take out their cellphone or use foul language in the classroom. Many of the students greeted me with smiles and hellos and asked me to help them when I could. This school has a nearly 100% career and college readiness score".
The staff treated me as part of the family and even the administrators asked me if I needed any accommodations to my schedule. On the day I left, they thanked me for my service and hoped to see me again.
Parking is a problem on Thursday and Friday because of alternate side of the street parking but on those days you can park on Main Street, three blocks to the West of the school.
I wish all schools were like Townsend Harris.
