Okay, I am so evil, but there are certain people who should never have become principals. For two years, I worked my bottom off being the best teacher that I could be. I read books, came to this board, asked other teachers at my school what they do, etc, etc, etc. I had great classroom management skills, students were happy, learning, engaged, etc. YET, I was non-reelected. I was asked to not come back (later I found out that a TON of people in the past two years have been non-reelected in this school district). Anyways, the P who had been horrible and non-reelected me has been pink slipped. I am so happy! Yes, happy. I am horrible and evil, but he should NEVER have been a P. He was horrible, lied to the teachers, said things to make us happy, but never followed up on it, backed the parents up and their ridiculous requests, etc. Soooo, now he knows how it feels to be asked to not come back. The only difference is, he deserves it. He has destroyed my self-confidence in teaching and I really wanted to give it up. I am so glad that I was given another opportunity to teach in a different district. I am glad to say that my new P likes me and treats me way better. Okay, just had to get that off my chest.
