Has anyone ever had a principal who talks to the staff as if we are students? It's like everything is a lecture and if you ask a question for clarification, she responds as if you're arguing with her. This is a new principal, so we've been trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. She replaced someone who was very loved and who gave the staff a lot of autonomy. The new P came in and took over everything with a very micro-managing style. Everybody is just trying to meet expectations at this point. l think most of us could adapt to the controlling style, but the micromanaging is combined with bad communication and constant swipes at our former administrator. It's gotten to a point where many teachers who were looking at retirement down the road are actively planning to leave at the end of this school year. Any tips? At this point I just keep my head down and try to stay under the radar.
