A meeting with "the boss man" yesterday resulted in "100%" certainty that I will be the Director of ACP China starting in August. This will involve 3 to 4 trips to SCS's Chinese sister schools. Apparently there are five of them now with the possibility of adding two more by the end of the summer. Each overseas trip will be about 21 days in length. I will be training teachers, leading seminars and meeting with parents. What becomes of me here, when I am not traveling, is still up in the air. There is a possibility I will teach three classes of my choice in the morning and use the rest of the afternoon to communicate with our Chinese teachers, answering their questions, making sure they are following our curriculum and using our system of grading so when the students transfer here we are comparing apples to apples. If domestic enrollment is high enough, I will be out of teaching completely and sharing academic advising duties with Tyler. I am guardedly excited. If the wrinkles get ironed out and "100%" means "100%" that means more travel in my future and a pay increase. Time will tell.
Starting my Reboot with Joe Cross this weekend...well, the prep part. The eating part starts Tuesday. Fun times!
Finally, and this is the most exciting thing, here's a peek at the logo for our online store that is about to launch. We've been given seed money to start making prototypes of various art projects and will be selling them direct as well as at gift shops. Stay tuned for the unveiling of our website.
