    have coming over to or come over to

    I take conversational classes at a Language Center. One of our teachers is flying back home to Toronto. We are going to have a new replacement teacher. What would be the difference in meaning if I said

    "We are going to have a new teacher coming over to school."

    OR

    "A new techer is going to come over to school."

    Why do you want to use "over"?

    It's not necessary, "We are going to have a new teacher" and "A new teacher is going to come to the school." are fine.
