I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s day! We had professional development that day, but it was a “chose your own adventure” so my department and I decided to stay off campus and explore college options for our students. We had lunch at a cool street taco place.
I have 2 interviews coming up!! I have my interview with the school I mentioned last week (I had a great phone interview so they moved me to the final round), and I have another interview on Friday with a different school. I’m excited but also terrified. This is seriously so stressful. How do you handle interview nerves? Either of these jobs would be amazing. These are both very highly rated and competitive schools which adds a big intimidation factor. So, prayers and good wishes please!
My replacement started on Monday. It was a rocky start. On the first day, she pointed out how all the public districts are glad she is taking over because they hate us. She ripped apart an ETR that my mentee wrote. She criticized everything we did as “not effective or timely”. It was ROUGH! On Tuesday, she realized she over stepped and didn’t say anything criticizing on Tuesday. She also didn’t really seem engaged in learning anything either. It was awkward. Thursday, she never left her office. She hasn’t interacted with any students and she has only been to 2 classes (we are inclusion intervention specialists so I attend class every bell in order to be a support for the students and the teacher). I don’t know how to repair this situation. I want to leave my students in capable hands and things are off to a rocky start. Training your replacement is rough and we will be doing this until the end of the school year (June!). Any have any advice?
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
