Limbo...It's Not Just for Parties

Do you remember your Dante? The outermost circle of Hell was "Limbo," where all the good people who had the bad fortune to be born before Christ had to hang out. It wasn't really their fault that they weren't "saved," but yet they just couldn't be allowed to go to Heaven. Working in Curriculum recently has been a lot like that. I keep thinking that one of us should print "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate."* on the door.

We keep being assured that answers concerning our job descriptions, office locations, and associated goals will be provided soon. But with two weeks left to go in the school year, we're getting a little nervous. Can we buy the science kits our kids need? What will Curriculum Optional Day look like in August? Do we get to replace the instructional coaches who have moved onto other jobs? Is there just one Boss Lady next year---or three? Can we train some building level math and science experts? Will we know all the answers if we tune in tomorrow?

In the meantime, I guess we all just keep dancing as fast as we can. Limbo!
