I am somewhat surprised at how many people - and not just the usual suspects -- have been coming out to the summer series. There have even been a bunch of newly minted Teaching Fellows who are about to begin teaching. Oh, did we have stuff to tell them. Like they need to know how to navigate the political minefield of school politics. Where does the chapter leader stand in relation to the principal? A buddy and lackey who will repeat anything to say and thereby get you on the shit list and possible discontinued? Some lessons in how to bow and scrape with dignity until you get tenure. If you CL is Unity, handing out MORE lit may get you hung - ask us so we can look up your CL to see if one of the 800 who go to conventions.
But this is more than for new members.
