First Day of School
Well, the first day back at school proved to be a winner. First, the entire AISD faculty--all 7,000 of us--crammed into the Nokia Live theater for convocation only to find out that the scheduled speaker couldn't make it. The superintendent spoke eloquently for 30 minutes, the faculty orchestra played a couple tunes, and we went home. I wonder how many thousands of dollars the district spent to use the facility to accomplish approximately nothing.
The afternoon was no better. I found out, by chance, that my assignment has been changed to Junior English regular and AP. Nobody bothered to tell me I'd be teaching regular English III, and I wonder if I would have made it to the first day of class without being told. Plus, I'm now Junior team leader. I don't even want to be. I'm an Indian, not a Chief, and don't want the extra responsibility. I wasn't even asked if I wanted the position.
It's gonna be a long year.Posted by tat at August 9, 2004 09:57 PM
