I got promoted! Answered

I did.

As of September, the Headteacher has asked me to be Acting Head of Year 7. I'll be responsible for the day-to-day welfare and behaviour of 160 children.

This is right out of the blue.

I'm excited.

I'm terrified.

I'm management!

Unfortunately, that means more work, so less time Making, less time online. You won't notice until September, but I'll apologise in advance.

Wow



EDIT

I've already found myself doing stuff - organising a week of activities for 300 kids, and I get to order senior management around...

I think I may enjoy this...

WOW! Congratulations!


*Pops cork on champagne bottle*

IMO, you're the perfect man for the job! I truly envy your students!

Hah - I can think of at least three who will hate it.

And a couple of staff will be annoyed, and I'll be in a position to do something about another Head of Year who is not pulling their weight...

Hah, I've already torn up one "to do" list...

Kiteheadmaster's to do list:

1) Fire a few people

2) Make instructables part of the homework; ie, the class members must each make an ible on how to calculate the radius of a circle

3) Teach every child how to make instant rockets!

4) Hire Kitewife to same school

5) Kick out any migrant American children who refuse to spell color with a U

6) Run for the hills

5) Kick out any migrant American children who refuse to spell color with a U

Like you?

Except for the children part. He has shown great prejudice against the non U users, and has persecuted us without mercy. :P 'Tis a wee joke, is all. Just a bit of lighthearted fun. No offense intended.

Especially now that I got Adrian involved...I'm staying out of it now, it looks like it's getting a bit ugly.

Hey! Getting in a conversation with me was a BIG MISTAKE?! Lol, jk, no hard feelings I hope...

None at all, trust me, I can always have a laugh, sorry for saying you were condescending, you were coming down on me, my natural response is either violence or explanation of argument...

Ouch - it's having an effect already - I haven't had time to browse the site all day, even though I've had three hours without lessons.

Ick! I'm here for you, buddy. I'll help you through your instrutables withdrawl...

Promotion? *looks both ways before crossing street* Congratuations, Mr. Kiteman!

Thank you. You can stop saluting now.

I can? Good.

BOOM de yada, BOOM de yada!

Did you throw an extra "M" in there, or am I about to learn a new acronym?

Personally, for the superlative of "ROFLMAO" I prefer ROFLSHMALFO-

Rolling On the Floor Laughing So Hard My Artificial Leg Fell Off

pronounced "Rofful-Shmal-Foe"

ROFLSHIARMOLORIWALATFOAW!

Rolling On the Floor Laughing So Hard I Accidentally Ripped My Own Leg Off, Replaced It With an Artificial Leg and That Fell Off As Well.

Thankfully during these bouts carpal tunnel didn't set in...

Congrats !

Acting Head of Year 7

I didn't know you were in show business too LOL

Thank you for your confidence in my abilities...

I've seen that summarised in two words: scum floats.

I'm confused - you work at the same school, but you don't teach?

I'll still teach, but less. I won't have a tutor group :-( but I will get to have a much bigger say in the running of the school. I'll also be involved in child protection issues, which I'm not looking forward to - there are some things I'd rather not be reminded of.

I'll also be involved in child protection issues, which I'm not looking forward to - there are some things I'd rather not be reminded of. Well, I sure know what you mean, but why not think of it this way: you could save helpless children from abusive situations or even save a child's life! Isn't that worth all the bother?

...and the fights with parents for telling them how to raise their children, the lawsuits, the fighting, angry moms beating him up (they're surprisingly good fighters), the personal troubles if it involves a relative/neighbor/friend, children crying, and of course revenge. Go for it Kiteman! *Raises thumbs*

Yeah, but for me anyhow, it would be worth it to shield even one child from harm. But then, I'm not the one who's gonna have to put up with all that other stuff!

There's one thing guaranteed to wind me up - a whining child with a long story along the lines of...

She said that he said that they said that I sad that they said that she said that he looked at me funny.

Oh - I'll get interviewed by the school inspectors next time they come... >runs for hills<

LOL! And I found ANOTHER typo! Really, I expected better, coming from the new headmaster of the school!

Don't forget to talk about how much you like explosions and fire! :D

What will you do when the school closes? Move?

I'm already working on getting a place at the local-to-my-current-school high school (where 300 kids from my current school will be getting transferred).

I'm confident of getting a place, I'm just trying to get around the interview - I hate interviews.

Gotcha. Hope it works out good!

Yay! Congrats! And I hope the pay makes up for the extra work! :D

We'll see - it's only for a term (hence the "acting"), but it depends whether anybody applies for the permanent position that starts in January, whether they want to work in a school already scheduled for closure.

I suppose the term that you do the job for can be used to decide whether you want to apply for it yourself. Congrats!

Really? They picked you? hm..food for thought.

=P

But really, Congrats! Are you gonna miss teaching?

No, I'll still be teaching, and I'll probably still have a lab. I just won't be my lab because another teacher will have a class based in there.
