Two evening teacher workshops counted as a day for us, so today was it. We had our final faculty meeting, which was done before 9:30, and then we all went to finish up whatever we had left to do.
I didn’t have much. I revised my APUSGOV syllabus because college board said it needs more detail. Then I finished organizing Mr. F’s shelves.
Aaaand then we watched a movie in Mr. W’s room.
And then we left to celebrate. I really did have an incredible year, so it was a celebration for me.
On to the next…
Teacher workshop day two was a day full of meetings: a meeting about new grading protocols, a meeting about CBE, a meeting about how adding flex time next year will work, a PLC meeting… Thankfully, there were breaks in between each one.
The flex time meeting was the rowdiest. The faculty I work with has no chill, so new initiatives are always met with a barrage of questions. New initiatives that expose gaps in technological savvy are even more fun. But I think there’s a lot of excitement to try this out. I certainly think it’s got potential.
Stay tuned, I guess.
Afterwards, I grabbed lunch with Mr. F, Mr. W, and- when she got out of her additional meetings (because she’s a department head)- Mrs. T. Then I had to head own to Mrs. Z’s room for a department meeting because she’s filling in for Mr. B temporarily (It’s weird, but I’m still very okay with it not being me).
I didn’t have anything to do after that because it was time for wrapping up grades and verifying them, and- BOOM!- I’m a wizard, so my grades were done last Friday. My room’s also in order, so I gave myself the job of helping Mr. F organize his nasty, cluttered book shelves. I’m halfway done, so I’ll finish tomorrow!
