I actually have a day job that involves teaching high school math. Then I have an afternoon job that involves coaching a bunch of students on my school’s Speech Team. It’s really competitive in Illinois and the season began back in October.
(Blogging is the late-night job that pays exactly none of my bills.)
Anyway, as you read this, my kids are competing at their Sectional tournament. There are 14 different events. In each event, there are approximately 12 competitors at this level. Whoever finishes in the top 3 in any event has a spot in the State tournament next week. (Got all that?)
Here’s hoping I’m going out of town next weekend…
