I was hired exactly a week ago. I can't go in until HR finalizes everything. Its just frustrating knowing that schools starts the week after next. While waiting I've: -created my syllabus with expectations, hw policy, etc. (waiting until i talk to my friend/co-worker about some mandatory policies and such before finalizing it) -figured out my first 2 days -starting to work on a powerpoint for the first lessons -did some shopping for things i'll need and other supplies -made a classroom website -compiled a list of tons of questions. just trying to make good use of my time while i'm waiting.
