No, I don't mean drunk wasted. Just a bit of another wasted day at work. Got to school at 8 a.m. and we began our meeting around 8:20. Spent some time going over goals and whatnot for the year. Then we had breakout sessions that covered things like TAKS guidelines (which don't really apply to me), school policies (which was only a very quick overview), school discipline (again another brief overview), and then more stuff on goals and expectations. Then it was time for lunch. Went to a chinese buffet with my mentor teacher. It wasn't bad. The afternoon was to be a work day. Couldn't get keys to my room so I came back to the main building with my mentor teacher and she found out that she couldn't access her "I" drive which had all her teaching materials on it. I got some basic information from her, but nothing much really. Then she took me back over to the other building so I could "work" in my room. Well, still couldn't get keys, but my office door was open. So I gathered up all the extra "stuff" that was in my room (old books, cables, etc) and then hooked up the computer that was there. Couldn't log on. Then I sat and worked on a list of stuff to bring and do. I started reading the book that was given to us today. Around 3:45 I went back to the office to see about keys and what could be done with the extra stuff. Was told that another teacher had the keys but couldn't find me... hello... where else would I be but in the room??? Then I talked to the computer guy of sorts and was told that I have new computers, but they haven't been hooked up and that it's going to be a pain to get rid of all the stuff in my room and then there was a discussion with the technology director about me being in that room and now it's kind of up in the air as to what room I'm going to be in. So tomorrow I have no idea where I'm supposed to be. So I finally walk back over to the other building at 4:00 and somehow I miss the person that I rode with so I spend another 15 minutes trying to locate her (since I didn't have her cell number). It was a frustrating day where I didn't get much accomplished. I hope tomorrow is better.
