I have 2 instructors who have expressed interest in teaching the same format but wasn’t able to provide more spots. I just had 1 opening and asked if either wanted the spot. Now I am getting non-committal responses. Things like “Is ‘so & so’ going to be interested in alternating or do you need me every class?” or responding with interest but only if they can adjust the schedule.
Should I just forgo the whole mess and tell them as they could not provide a definite answer then I am not going to offer the class? Do I say I will let them share the class but they need to make sure it is always covered?
I am new to my role so am still laying the foundation and this is one those really difficult moments that is not black and white for me.
I already had 2 instructors but they were giving me the hem-n-haw of alternating.
Silence turned out to be a best friend. I put it out there then left it for the day. When i checked back the next morning one of them pulled the trigger saying she would take it and would like the other as a back up.
