ROB - Busy Busy Busy
Tupelo High School is also the biggest high school in Mississippi, with 14 buildings on campus and about 2000 students from grades 9-12.
Unfortunately for Rob, all the work he has to do for his high school job keeps him too busy to continue the ESL job. So, after the most recent course ends on September 4, Carley will be hiring a new ESL teacher, and Rob won't be so over-worked and stressed out every Tuesday and Thursday.
CARLEY - El Centro
Carley is still the director (and only full-time employee) of El Centro, Tupelo's non-profit Latino Center, and the beginning of school means things get busier for her too. El Centro's after-school program, Campo Brillante, started with the beginning of school, and she's got 16 elementary school kids, new teachers, new volunteers, transportation routes, materials, school officials and parents to deal with. It's a lot of work but also a lot of fun.
And, since Rob is busy with work and teacher certification classes, Carley's had to find a new ESL teacher for the adult English classes as well. As an employer, she's very bummed to lose Rob - all of his students love him and the classes are full. But, as a wife, she'll be glad to have a less stressed out husband.
