Below, a quote from a recent e-mail message I received:

I was so excited to receive your message!!! This will be great fun now

that we have e-mail in our school. We're getting inserviced next Wed. on

using it, but I have addresses and am having fun trying all this on

my own. I'm still fairly new at learning about the big picture of e-mail

and internet...

The writer is a K-12 teacher in the upper Midwest.

Is this use of "inservice" teacher jargon? Has anyone else heard or seen



info appreciated.

With best wishes,

Orin Hargraves


Yes I am a teacher and the term is used to tell about the workshops we

have to attend during the school year. Teachers all over the country are

reguired to have a certain number of inservice hours.
