I was asked by my university about my intentions for the new year:
Your committee work record form and letter of intent are required for your 2010 evaluation.
Thus, please submit them to the office by Monday, October 11 (6 o’clock)
1. Letter of intent (Re: renewing your contact)
– You can use your own wording (informal).
So, I can be informal, but what does that mean, exactly? I decided to cover my bases, you know, to cross my ‘i’s and dot my ‘t’s.

For the curious, my university has a policy of linking rookie teachers to veterans for assistance through the red tape. They could probably cut the red tape and have less need of the buddy system, but deliberately giving a buddy to new teachers does make the rookie feel like they plan ahead.
Oh, and I don’t actually know anyone who let their students out early, but the empty threat is a proud component of gossip, I believe.
Uh, what is ‘the Q.T.’ anyway? Danny DeVito said it all the time in LA Confidential, but i I only know it is related to gossip.
Finally, now I see the spelling error that they will use as the reason for my dismissal! Dang it!
