You know that I'm not a big fan of attending workshops. We have too much work to do to be worrying about a demonstration on the new copier, seeing how we're not even given the codes to use it in the first place. But if there was a clinic that could seriously help us teachers, then it would be on e-mail etiquette. And there would be a title, which would be Not Every E-mail Is Of High Importance, So Do Not Mark Them As So.

How many times have I seen an e-mail saying, "the pen at the check-in desk has gone missing," with the subject of Bad News and that dang exclamation point? Or it may say that the other high school in the district has changed the opening date of it's production of Transformers: The Musical. It is not an emergency that I know that the librarian in the district (from a school I've never seen) is having day-surgery to remove a mole.

This really should be a case of the boy crying wolf, but it isn't because I can't start ignoring the e-mails. I have to read them because I know the day that I stop will be the day that the school announces a solid gold Porsche give-away to the first 100 responses.
