February tomorrow!?!

Hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of February. I’ve been slow to adjust to the fast pace of my new workplace, although in speaking with other teachers it seems we’re all in the same boat.

The problem is that the school expects more than could possibly be accomplished without neglecting students. Then they say ‘focus on the students’, with an implied ‘but still do all this other stuff’.

To his credit, my Principal overtly doesn’t pressure about ‘other stuff’, but it is that stuff that’s included in my appraisal portfolio.

They say time is an organization’s most precious resource, but maybe fail to remember that a teacher’s time with students is more precious than other time.
