So, quick update: we had the new teacher meeting on classroom management today. It lasted from 3:15-6:00. Yeah. It was a complete waste of time. Of the eight new teachers, only three of us showed. But, the principal, curriculum coordinator, and a person from the school board kept us there for two hours and forty minutes to tell us all about stuff we already knew/learned in college. They also blamed us the whole time - there have been sixty-seven write ups in four weeks - forty inside classrooms. So, clearly we don't have classroom rules or procedures. Or we do, but they haven't been stated, modeled, practiced, and reviewed enough. I review classroom procedures daily. The principal also sent me a long email asking for the students, who are giving me trouble. I sent her my list and explained the cold truth: I've never seen such disrespect, I have epilepsy and the stress of trying to get these students to understand procedures and to get them up in skill level, has caused me to have three seizures in two weeks. I enjoy teaching and I know I am actually helping a few students, but I cannot do my job properly if these same students (who do the same things everyday) are not dealt with. Calling home and write ups aren't helping. I advised they take them off sports, student council, and other activities until they can learn to act like young adults. At this point, I really don't care. I'm going to be looking for another teaching job in November. And, if I can't find out - I'll quit in order to study for my Masters or early elementary certification. I'm an alternative certification person, anyway. I can find something else, if I really have to. I just know I've had some absent seizures - if I have a big one. . .I'm out. I'm not risking my health for students who refuse to even give me basic human courtesy.
