This will be long, sorry. 9th year in education, I am a librarian. This is my second year at this school and I have never been in such an unprofessional environment. Last year I caught an aide gossiping about me; I confronted her about it and told her it was wrong. Apparently that made a mortal enemy out of her; many principal meetings later, NOTHING happened, even though she spread rumors about me and alienated many of my co-workers against me. To this day, she continues to passive-aggressively work against me (i.e., she is supposed to cover me for my 30-min lunch and she is almost always 10 mins late). ANYWAY, these teachers at this school also run to supervisors to whine and complain instead of bringing it up with the teacher themselves. A certain group of teachers, spurred on by this aide, brought up complaints about me to my super. My super just accepted what they said without even getting my side. This just happened yesterday. I have a private office with a printer in it. Sometimes others print things to it. Students tape up things to my wall; I don't pay much attention. One of my girl aides, that I've gotten to know very well, posted up a pic of her pushing one of my boy aides off of a cliff and falling into the mouth of a whale looking thing. On it she wrote, this is how i would kill ____. NOW...at the time she did, 8th grade classes were writing stories about how they would kill someone (re-enacting Poe) so it came from that. But anyway, it was very obviously a joke if you know these kids--they are very good friends and have a crush on each other. Apparently when I was absent Thursday, people were in my office, saw the picture, and became VERY offended. My super ambushed me the next day and said people were sending her emails, "blowing up" her phone about it, etc. She said it was inappropriate b/c the girl said she was going to kill the boy. I get that if you don't know the background, it might be disturbing, but it's very obviously a joke (cartoonish). I just KNOW it's the aide and other group of people, b/c they are the only ones who go in my office. They are targeting me yet again. Part of me wants to have a meeting with super (since she NEVER let me explain, just ambushed me, told me she took it down off my wall and it upset a lot of my co-workers). 8th grade English classes had their kids write very graphic stories killing people -- where was the pearl-clutching then? That same day, yesterday, they played a song over the loudspeaker that clearly said, "Maybe I should kill myself." Again, if a cartoon picture offended them so much, then all these things should be offensive. Otherwise, clearly I am being harassed. But part of me thinks it will get me nowhere...my super is "friends" with this clique. What do I do? My principal himself did zero last year even faced with hardcore evidence and documentation of harassment and a hostile environment. Do I just give up and look for somewhere else, or do I fight the fight? (BTW I asked the boy again if the pic the girl drew bothered him, and he about fell over laughing at how ridiculous my question was.) Thanks for your help.
