I have recieved the greatest honor of my career. Better than making the third ballot for Teacher of The Year (really, third ballot is enough. The winner has to do this big ol portfolio that's hardly worth the cheese and cracker reception.), better than that one kid who worked in the food court at the mall and would grandly proclaim "No teacher of mine pays for a smoothie when I am working!", better than the polyester school logo t shirt that we got for Christmas. The best ever.
We have a mandatory meeting on our plan to talk with district tech personnel. It's our chance to "open up the lines of communication" so that the tech staff is more "user friendly" and it gives me a great chance to contemplate my similarity to Dilbert. One problem surfaces during the discussion: impossibly slow log in. Some of our computers take up to twenty minutes to log on. The suggestion? Video someone logging in. Show a clock in the video and send it to admin. Then perhaps some funds will be allocated to replace the worst of our computers.
"This" a colleague pipes in "is the perfect job for Ms Educat."
and she's soooooo right!
I am storyboarding right now. I have plans to knit during the film and show just how much knitting I can get done while waiting to log in. I had thought about planting a seed and then eating the resulting fruit by the time login happens. I could show mould growing on some food. There are just too many possibilities.
Can we call this blog entry a casting call? What talent do you have that can be accomplished during a 20 min login? Headshot and resume requirements may be waived if your talent is compelling enough.
