New Teacher Orientation

Yesterday we got our schedule for the “New Teacher Orientation Week”.  If you are not a teacher in a public school district this may not mean much to you, but if you are a teacher in a public school system and are not surprised then read the sentence again and check the date.  Yes, it is mid JUNE.  NOT the week before workshops – or in some years, the first day of workshops.  At least that is the way it has been in the public school districts I have been in.  In the worst possible example, we got our schedule every day at about 10:00 am for the rest of the day.  How do you plan for anything????!!!????

This schedule has come MONTHS in advance.

Anywho, the schedule is awesome.  Busy and possibly a little tiring, but awesome.  I have never in my life had a workshop week schedule that included the following sentences: “Overview of household help”, “Security Issues and De-brief conducted by US Embassy”, and best of all….”Time in Classrooms”!!!!

  • Divisional Curriculum Time (x 2)
  • Hiring of Personal Driver, Cook and Bearer
  • Dinner Out
  • SHOPPING!!!
  • Dinner at ___(fill in person’s house)
  • Time with Principal

Just the fact that the word US EMBASSY appears anywhere on my schedule is far superior to my former workshop week schedules.
