Oh holy hell. I’m in for one wild ride. My other foreign coworker can’t stay for family reasons. Now my boss has decided instead of two teachers each working 2/3 time, she’ll have one teacher. Me. She rearranged the schedule so some classes only get a foreign teacher once a week now, but that means I have to essentially push two days of work into one. Oh yeah, she’s adding a middle school program as well. Now won’t that be fun. Of all the age groups I hate, I hate middle schoolers the most. I’ll be teaching writing and speaking/debate. We will have books. I will not compromise on that issue. You’ve essentially just doubled my teaching load. I’m not going to add two classes where I have to write a new lesson every week, get approval, get turned down, rinse and repeat.
I’m now going to watch MythBusters and try to relax. This input to stress has sent me into a fibro flare just after I got the last one calmed down.
