It's kind of strange when we teachers are pulled from our classrooms to attend trainings, isn't it? In other industries, it makes sense to take from the contracted time to receive training, and as thankful as I am to not have to spend more of my personal time to receive more training, it is frustrating to be out of my classroom.
I drew the short straw among the 8th grade English teachers, and tomorrow I will be out of my classroom for a few hours for a meeting on how to have better meetings.
Indeed, this is exactly what I need. I need another meeting. I will hold out for hope that it will indeed help in making meetings more productive. I would really like to get some wasted time back.
