Let’s Review, Shall We?

FTE: A full-time teacher in the Hah Thkoo has five classes. When I was hired I was .6 for the first three semesters, .8 for another year, and full-time thereafter. If the board were to authorize three new FTE (Full Time Equivalents) anytime for the following school year, in theory five new teachers could be hired at 3/5 (.6) each, maybe spread over departments. That’s FTE.

But we’ve had TWO BFTE in the last week. First was the perfect weather day for shooting in The Park Of Wicker and Katiebrown Bucktown, then the ever-so-pleasant stroll in the mist to galleries. It was a gas. Literally. Ask ’em about being trapped underground.
