Yesterday our morning classes went on a field trip for some sort of sex-ed presentation. We native teachers didn't go, but we still had to come into work at 9 a.m. to clean whiteboards. How long do you think it takes four teachers to clean eight whiteboards? The answer is not three hours.
So I brought in my laptop and cranked out three travel articles for a new Web site, 1122 words in about an hour, and I was feeling sluggish and uninspired.
As it turns out, the spray cleaners we were given to use on the whiteboards should absolutely not ever be used on whiteboards. After a single writing on the newly cleaned boards, the erasers fail to erase anything and now leave horrendous black streaks worse than any ink accumulation *before* the so-called "cleaning." Super.
