Tomorrow and Wednesday our school is having the geometry end of course exam. Thursday and Friday we are having the algebra EOC. I teach English. This has nothing to do with me. THIS afternoon a schedule was sent out via email, and I am scheduled to give the geometry EOC during 1st & 2nd blocks both days. The only thing is, on B days (tomorrow), my first & second periods are regular English classes. Almost NONE of those kids even have geometry. Hello? I need to be teaching those kids. So I emailed the test coordinator, & she said my students (my entire class for two periods) would be sent to the auditorium during my class. EXCUSE ME? THEN I pointed out that my regular students would be taking the algebra EOC on Thursday & Friday & would therefore miss my class. So this means an entire week of no English class for them?! What the??? I can get no response whatsoever. This is complete bull! None of the other freshmen English teachers have to give this exam. And the other freshmen English teachers don't have regular classes those periods, so they would only have a couple of students in their class anyway. On top of all this, during the algebra EOC I am being booted out of my classroom & put in the frikken portables! I have classroom sets of books & an LCD projector & dvd player that I'm using right now. Plus, on Friday I'm scheduled to be out. So now I'm going to have a sub that has to travel with that whole set up? I'm so mad I could CHOKE someone! Why doesn't anyone use his/her brain? And why do we get no notice of these kinds of significant disruptions until 2:00 the afternoon before?!?! And why won't anyone in the administration respond to my perfectly logical questions & requests? Where is the banging head against the wall cartoon cursing smiley when you need one?
