So I want to take a summer Additional Qualification course. In order to enroll, I have to get superintendent to sign a form that says I have been teaching for at least a year. For some reason a Principal cannot sign it.

In my school board there apparently is one superintendent that you send the form to to get it signed. The superintendent for my family of schools can’t do it.

So anyways, I asked my VP who I need to send the form to. She didn’t know, but said she would get back to me. That was two weeks ago. Last week, I asked my Principal, who also didn’t know, and said he would get back to me. He hasn’t.

I have scoured the website looking the information. It’s not there. Finally today, I decided to try calling someone I found mentioned on a website, who organizes AQ courses that the board offers. She told me she couldn’t remember the person’s name, but that at her old school thry had the name posted by the fax machine, do she would get back to me. She took down my name, but mispronounces it (specifically, she uses the original German pronunciation of my last name, rather than the anglicized version. This happens a fair bit..) I let it pass since she says she will call be back.

So anyways, by the time she calls back, I can’t answer my phone. She left a message, which I just listened to. In it, she says she has the information, but that she will look me up on outlook and email it to me, since she has my name.

Just checked my email, and there is nothing, so I imagine she couldn’t figure out the correct spelling of my name (first name also has an odd spelling).


I just emailed her saying “Hello, I thought you might have trouble finding me on outlook due to the spelling of my name. Thank you so much for your help.”

Hopefully I will finally have the info on Monday.
