So I was rather freaked out because my contract technically starts tomorrow. So I thought that classes started tomorrow. And no one had given me a schedule, a syllabus, materials, and I hadn't met with the director of the IB. Nothing. No orientation, no meeting with the other teachers...
So this morning after breakfast, I walked over to the main building to find out what the deal was. I talked to Sue who said that classes don't start until Monday. Oh! Well, I feel better now. Of course now I have to amuse myself for another 5 days.
The IB director should be here tomorrow, so I'm going to go talk with her then. I also have my doctor's appointment tomorrow. Pete says it'll be a blood test, chest x-ray and an EKG most likely. Then I get to fill out paper work for my foreign experts card (aka, work visa). Hopefully then the "this is what we expect of you as a teacher" part comes.
According to Sue, most of the foreign teachers should be on campus by now. Aka...in the building I'm in now. I have heard a lot more activity going on today. I think later I may open my door again and hope someone wanders by. I heard two people walking down the hall speaking english, but I couldn't think of a good excuse to pop my head in the hall other than: "I heard two people speaking english and I'm lonely....HI!"
Anyway, don't want to bore you all with rambling and I'm actually pretty hungry (I think it was writing that last post that did it).
As a side note, I bought some potpourri for my apartment (it was on sale at Carrefour, and cheaper than an aerosol air freshener) and now it smells lovely in here.
