Our official work day starts at 8:15.
The agenda for the day (given out at 8:30)
8:15 – Breakfast in the Lounge (who knew) since we didn’t, a second breakfast………
8:30 – Introductions in the Library (one new teacher)
9:00 – Criterion Referenced Test Results (grades 3, 4 and 5 last year) twiddle thumbs…….
9:30 – Teacher Handbook and Mandatory Videos (Handbook, page by page, Videos, not the actual videos, just talking about the videos)
10:00 – Opening procedures : Office/Universal Breakfast/review of all papers in the teacher packet (every child gets free breakfast this year at our school-during instruction time – we discussed it and discussed it, then discussed it some more, but who knows how it will work, we have never done it…)
Picture this, kindergarten, the first day of school, lets go to the MP room and eat breakfast………. Four classes of them, we don’t recognize our kids yet, they can’t walk in line. They know NO procedures for ANYTHING……..
12:00 – Work in grade levels on specified agenda (don’t think it was really specified)

Mind numbing. Just mind numbing.
