I just got an email from my principal.
It was addressed to me and one other teacher. I expected it to be welcoming me to the school and giving me some good information for what to expect next week. Instead, it says simply:
“Since you guys have big rooms, we are going to use your rooms for rotations the first week back to school. We will need a functioning projector. “
That was all.
The good news: Apparently I have a big classroom.
The bad news: I don’t yet know which classroom is mine, what rotations she’s talking about, or whether or not my room has a projector, much less how how to use it.
I’d forgotten how much it stinks to be the new person.
