Hello, I am a new member. I would like to explain the situation and get your advice because I am new, this was my very first teaching job at a private school and I am not sure if this is how things are suppose to work or not. I was unofficially hired as a Computer Technology instructor at a local private school, I say "unofficially" because I never signed a contract. I did complete a W-4 form. I went to the professional development trainings for two days at the urging of the Principal. However the training required log-in credentials for software programs that I did not have, so I sit there and watched others complete the training. I attended the opening/Welcome day in which I saw my classroom for the first time. The room designated as a computer lab (my classroom) was not a classroom, but filled with thousands of books as it was previously a book storage room, and I was encouraged to clear these books out in order to get the room ready. I was overwhelmed because I could not complete this task by myself as it was literally thousands of books on floor to ceiling shelves. Several teachers feeling sorry for me helped as much as they could. Maintenance eventually cleared some books, but by the time the first day of school rolled around, the room was still in disarray and full of books. They did bring new computers in boxes but it was not set up, and the equipment was all over the place. Some things were missing and I could not set it up if I wanted to. Again, I was overwhelmed. I was given a white board but it was not set up and still in the box. It was extremely heavy and I didn't want to try to take it out and break it. I was given nice desks but they were stacked on top of each other and I could not physically set the room up by myself. So essentially on the first day of school, all of the other instructors had their white boards and other instructional materials set up, while I was left to teach in a makeshift library with frustrated students sitting on the floor and on computer desks. I was extremely frustrated and felt disrespected. Did I have a right to feel this way? Or is there a legitimate explanation for this?
