I have to say that my new school already seems very different from my previous school. I think I’m going to like it. First of all, my Principal has communicated with me and the two other new teachers and forwarded us all of the emails relating to scheduling, etc. He also said I could voluntarily meet with him next week for a transition meeting and connected me with the previous teacher in my position to meet. He said he would compensate both of us for any time spent. The curriculum director reached out to me about the new curriculum and the supplies for it. It seems more organized than I am used to and I really like the curriculum we are using. In my previous job, I had to ask for the info and I didn’t know any of this stuff until a few days before school started. I remember panicking because they hadn’t sent us a schedule! My new district also offers tons of PDs that you can take to earn .5 of a grad credit for free. A friend of mine says that they’re great! I’m attending a few next week. I have 9 credits past my masters now so I definitely want to use the opportunity to earn more. My team also emailed me to introduce themselves and said that we can meet them week school starts to discuss things like grading and classroom management strategies that they use. I am so excited to have a team!
