That’s right, my first major assignment of the day today was killing a rather sizable spider stalking a coworker. Let’s not debate whether the spider could have been captured and released into the wild. I believe this big creepy-crawly had been born in captivity, as it were, a lifelong resident of the nooks and crannies of The Mailbox and surrounding offices. And now, no matter how hard I try, I cannot find a reference to “arachnid extinguishing” in my job description.
Then again, the daily comings-and-goings of teachers is similar. How much of a teacher’s day can be filled with tasks not on your job description? Janitorial service, emergency medical first-responder, mental health care, family counseling, transportation coordination, interior design, administrative management, hall monitor!
