Today was Day 3 of Teachers being back. Our secretary has been selected to open the new high school. So we had a birthday breakfast for her this morning. People gave moving speeches about her. The funniest was about her first week at our school. First principal handed her the entire population of our schools folders and told her to enter them into the computer. This was 48 hours before the students were due to arrive for meet the teacher. She and counselor stay there till after midnight getting all of students entered into the computer. The more I hear about the backstage antics of a first principal, the more I am amazed she lasted as long as she did.
Then we had a team meeting. One teacher is very upset about and being required to teach writing, math, social studies. I felt that the team leader handled this very well, and in what more diplomacy that I would’ve been able to muster. Then we worked on our rooms for the rest of the day. It was over all a very protective day.
