    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. :)

    That's awesome! I wish the same thing would happen to the biotch AP that I had last school year! Instead she went on to become a P at another school. But I know karma will get her sometime!

    Hooray, Peachy!

    There are rumors that my recent elementary school may close this summer due to lack of enrollment and money. I've toyed with the idea of sending the Principal a symphathy card over her lack of unemployment money, as our contracts were written to end on the last day of the school year. So sad that she won't be able to file. And won't have a job. And won't be able to be on page 97 of the math book on the same day each year ever again.

    And then I will swoop in and offer to buy up all their school resources for pennies. Wahahhahahhahahahahha!

    Hey your P sounds like mine. He has no backbone at all, and he lets the kids get away with fighting, cursing ect..., so the school wont look bad with too many referrals. The parents know this and also get to run all over the teachers! This is my first year teaching and his 2nd as a P at this school. He wants to be a friend to the parents rather than a disciplinarian to the students, and these kids need it b/c we have high gang activity the the area and many of our parents are in jail. He isnt going anywhere b/c his "mentor" has a high power job in our district office, and he has already bailed him out of a few situations last year. Anyhoo Karma definitely got your old P!;)

    This sounds like my former building except my P there was a lady. But she did the exact same things. I'm SO glad I got outta there! The sad part is, she will probably keep her job because she doesn't know any better and any decent principal will stay far, far away from that particular charter school organization. :unsure:

    As my great aunt was fond of saying "the higher they rise, the harder they fall". I liked that quote :D

    I completely understand where you're coming from! Ohhh if only this could happen to my current P (she made my life a living he** this year)... Luckily in a couple weeks she will be my former P and I'll be on to bigger and better things.

    Karma is a funny thing.
