I just sent an email to my principal, and I often wonder if I annoy her. I get really wrapped up in logistical things, and ask a lot of questions. For example, we have an assembly once per month, and it's always from 8:50-9:15. Second-graders have specials from 9-9:30 on some of those days. My principal dismisses classes in grade order so it usually takes about 5 minutes before 2nd-graders can get out of the gym. This leaves 10 minutes for specials (and 10 minutes of prep time for teachers). So, I emailed her asking if it was possible to dismiss 2nd-graders first, so that we could at least have half of our special time. I email her about this type of thing once and a while, and I sometimes wonder if she gets annoyed. Is this kind of thing petty and pointless? I was just wondering what other teachers thought.
