I started this week not really believing that I was going to make it. The quarter ended last Friday, so grades were due. I had two doctor’s appointments, one blog due, and a meeting with two high school departments on Thursday. I needed to be at the board meeting Monday night and the National Honor Society faculty council meeting Wednesday night. None of which would be a problem. Except that my department was being audited—on Thursday.
I love that word, audit. Just saying it strikes fear into the hearts and minds of everyone in hearing distance. It reminds me of the words “Final Exam” or “Dean’s Office.”
Our school has never really had a full time GT Coordinator, so I wanted to show everyone, myself included, just how amazing our program could be. The primary function of the audit, of course, is to determine whether or not the school is in compliance with state regulations. I don’t want to be just in compliance; I want our school to be a leader in gifted education.
