The Third Day
It’s been three days since my trailer and seven others in the teacher housing compound were burglarized.
“So sorry about that,” wrote Jane Little. “I am very interested to hear of the administrative response. I hope it is swift and appropriate.”
Unfortunately, Jane, it has been neither.
Except to reprimand me for sending an e-mail announcing the burglaries, the superintendent has said nothing at all about the break-ins.
Not a single public word. No acknowledgment. No condolences. No reassurances.
The silence is leaving a lot of us teachers wondering how important we really are in the whole scheme of things in this remote district.
I guess we already know.
