After the interview, the prinncipal told me my first day would be the 21st (2 days before they officially began the school year). However, he also told me that it would be nice to have me come in just prior to that so that I can met the teacher I'll be working with and whatnot. So with that, I shook his hand and then departed to the Superintendent's office. I FINALLY managed to get all of the paperwork in last Thursday (the 3rd) and am all set to go. However, I've been sitting here wondering... Shuld I call and/or E-Mail the principal and let him know that all the paperwork's been turned in and ask him if I should wait until the 21st to come in or if I should come in prior to that? If so, what would be better a call or an E-Mail or both? I'd really appreciate some feedback, especially from you teachers who actually used aides and assistants.
