the dean position is still not posted. and apparently i'm not the only person gunning for it.
however, my AP told me yesterday that him and the principal decided that since I have been given so much responsibility since my colleague left (running PD, meetings, basically at the beck and call of my principal) they agree that it's only fair to take my advisory away from me to free up some of my time.
and when the time comes that dean is posted, it'll be easier to take the position as i'm only teaching 4 periods a day.
so in the meantime i'm just waiting for them to hire a new teacher to take over my old colleague's classes. because of the freeze, they have to interview all the ATR's in addition to traditional candidates before they are allowed to make a decision so it's taking a while. but i can't wait for the new teacher because i'm in the mood to meet someone new and this person will be picking up my dreaded advisory class!!!
while i'm waiting, i'm hanging around the AP trying to learn the ropes. today i played with the building security cameras for the first time and caught a kid graffiti-ing up a table in our main hallway. exciting because he just happens to be someone my AP is trying to get rid and here the kid earned himself a suspension.
my AP was so excited that we nabbed, he actually high fived me when he saw the camera footage.
omg i'm such a suck up. but really i'm desperate for money right now so i'm mostly gunning for per session hours.
