Starting Anew

Today is my first day on the job as a full-time, benefited and permanent employee of the school district. The first adjustment I had to make was getting to work a half hour earlier which is actually kind of nice because I get here well before the kids start arriving and that means I can get the lab ready without rugrats underfoot.

And it means I can get a few minutes to get myself sorted out for the day, think about what's going to need to happen today and then what's going on for the rest of the week.

Part of my week is still very much up in the air since my work schedule is still undergoing negotiations between three schools. And that's nice, it makes me feel wanted.

Also, I can jam music for a little while before the kids start rolling in. That's nice too.

I will be supporting the computers at three area elementary schools. Predominantly Macs and mostly in the computer labs but there are computers all over each other campuses that teachers need to get and keep in running order. I don't know how each of the other schools will shake out but I'm pretty confident that I'll like being at each of them as well.

The pros outweigh any cons by a good margin but I'm sure I'll have my complaints moving forward. But for now, I'm happy to be working full time again, locally. Now if I could only get some heat in this computer lab, its a crisp fifty degrees in here this morning.
