I posted last week about my insensitive principal who non-renewed me unjustly after 3 years of service at my urban charter school. He then, among other things, hired someone else, allowed this new teacher to go through my things (including my laptop) and leave my room a mess, took her around during lunch and introduced her to my students, etc. Last week, I ran a school-wide event. It was a very important event with the biggest parent turn-out of the year. I specifically asked my P if the new teacher would be there. He said, "no, that would be disrespectful. You've worked really hard and this is your night. I want to honor you." He then brought her to my event anyway and introduced her to parents and students as my replacement. It was humiliating. I found out yesterday that she has turned down the job over the weekend! He did all of that before she ever signed the contract! What a fool! Also, now my students are saying things like, "the new teacher must have not liked us" or "the new teacher must have thought we didn't do a good job" and are taking the fact that she is not joining the school personally! How is this level of incompetence tolerated?
