In that we are contemplating a honeymoon period speaks to the positive realm that we do share a number of things in common. Of course our common bond in this relationship is our love, and knowledge for the Social Sciences, and the teaching thereof. In a romantic relationship we can ostensibly gauge the extent and depth of a
partners love, based on how they react to the stimuli, coupled with the types and quality of actions which our partners initiate towards us.Having said that, this is precisely what I will be attempting to do during the initial introduction and transitional period. Of course, we all have the same objective; which will be to avail all of the children whom we teach, with a quality education. Based on this premise, it is my contention that, it will be critical to our short and long term relationship for me to establish two very important things at the outset. I must have some baseline data on all of the individuals who will be members of my team. Aside from their resumes and personnel files, therefore, during the honeymoon period, I must get to know the strengths and weaknesses of every individual who will be placed on the team. Considering the number of individuals whom I must get to know, which will enable me to make a quality assessment, I am prone to pursue this in four stages--I have chosen to label these stages as, primary, secondary, planning and formulation.
