Today was the first day of school. I spent last week preparing a packet for all my classes. I made a cover sheet and in the packet was classroom rules, expectations, my grading policy, special intructions for journals and how they are graded, a calendar, etc. I made all of these material specific to my classes. My department coworker is a class A slacker. He went in my room, took my master copies, whited-out my name, put his name on them and copied them for his classes. As I am going over them in one class today one of the kids told me "We have these same papers in Mr. N's class. Same pictures and everything except your name isn't at the top." This guy has been driving me crazy for a year. We were told in the spring to have a syllabus for each class to turn into the vp before school started this year. He wanted mine that I used for a class that I taught last year that he took. He didn't even know how to make a syllabus for his classes. He took mine to use as samples. I have them for each class and give them to the kids on the first day. We had two workdays this week. They started at 7:30. He arrived at 8:30 on one and said he thought it started at 8:30. The next day he showed up at 8:15 and wanted to know where the meeting was. I told him they made an announcement at 8:00 that the meeting was postponed. He said that wasn't his fault because he didn't get the email. He came into my class during his planning time today and was trying to recruit my students into his class during a period when his numbers are really low. He is always in my class during his planning interrupting things and just being a pest. I am just so aggravated with him I could scream!!!
