I work as a university instructor in an rural university, and to become a instructor here in our state, you need to go through some pretty rigorous training, pass several hard exams, plus complete a year long internship… After completing all of these requirements plus securing a place to work, the training doesn’t end. All of us are required to complete at least 30 minutes of training every year to keep our full teaching licenses, sometimes, the trainings are very enjoyable plus supply us some amazing new materials plus strategies to use in the classroom. Other times, though, they are only a waste of time… I went to a training Last weekend that offered lovely information but was difficult to accept. It was time well spent for learning plans, but I couldn’t get past the discomfort I was experiencing in the teaching room. The university that held the training had a unquestionably outdated and unserviced boiler plan that was overheating the room all day long. You could literally see the heated air coming out of the heater vents. It was so hot in that room we were sweating like pigs! It really didn’t help that I was standing so close to the heater. The seminar trainer opened several windows to try to help with the heat. However, that only made things worse because it was so chilly outside that freezing wind was now entering the room at a rapid pace. It caused us to be freezing cold in there! There was no cheerful medium! All of us were either continually overheating or freezing. The university genuinely needed to get it over with and replace their oil furnace. I tried to look past this enormous physical discomfort plus focus on the training, however it was proving to be impossible. I kept finding myself daydreaming all afternoon about the efficient heating plan that awaited myself and others at home.
