I was offered and accepted an integrated (inclusion) preschool teaching position. The board won't approve my hire until next Monday. Then it's 3 quick weeks to school filled with new teacher orientation and professional development days. When is the right time to ask for: curriculum/pacing guides to get into my classroom to start setting up what my classroom budget is when I should connect with my instructional assistant (they may need to hire someone I'm not entirely sure) when do I get a class list? IFSP/IEP information? At this point I haven't signed a contract. I met with the superintendent and started filling out HR stuff but I'm not even sure of my salary (although I've seen the salary guide available online). I don't want to seem rude or over eager to know about budget/salary stuff. My priority is setting up the classroom, meeting other teachers, and getting my hands on curriculum and pacing guides. How can I bring these topics up to the principal at the right time and in the right way?
