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
The writer is a K-12 teacher in the upper Midwest.
Is this use of "inservice" teacher jargon? Has anyone else heard or seen
With best wishes,
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.
