The time has finally come, the end of term. Time for sleeping, reading and sitting in the garden. Oh, and a bit of work maybe? Whilst dragging myself out of bed was a killer this morning I am quite looking forward to today. I am off timetable as teaching staff will not be taking their PPA time. This means I get to sit in my room, headphones on, working through the endless list of admin tasks that seem to fall on the shoulders of the ICT coordinators.
I will be creating profiles, changing class list, as well as the tedious task of adding passwords to accounts. For some reason though I actually like these jobs. Organising everyone in to the right place, setting us CSV files ready for upload is a great little task!
I also get the rather ruthless task of going through this years ‘Teacher’ drive. Going through working out what we need to keep, and what is just rubbish saved to show the kids one picture. I then have to decide what makes it into the archive, and what makes its way to the recycle bin. I’m sure I’ll get most of it right, but you can guarantee I will have a teacher moaning at me when a file goes missing!
Well, wish me luck with work today, I’ll try to get too distracted and get through the boring bits. I have my wife and a drink waiting for me when I get in after all!
