We used to have Columbus Day off as a holiday. Now the students get it off and the teachers have to go in for a professional day of meetings/trainings/etc. At least we get to go in an hour later than normal. . . though we get out an hour later. I don't mind learning new things about how to do my job better, but, unfortunately, that just never happens during our professional development days. It is just wasted time sitting around with Chromebooks where we are supposed to "do" stuff that we've all either already done or don't have access to from the place that we are at. I will be VERY cranky tomorrow. Don't freaking waste my time. I'd rather just have a normal day of work so I can just get on with my job.

If it's a waste of time, they should just forget about it, all together.

oh I agree. As part of our new contract we had to agree to 2 MORE PD days. Makes me insane.

We don't get Columbus day off in my school district. Haven't had it off for as long as I can remember.

I didn't realize that teachers had to go to school on Columbus Day and thought everyone was off. Hope your day goes by quickly
