I am so mad I'm crying right now. A few weeks ago, my boss asked if they could use my classroom as a daycare from 4-6pm everyday. I told her that period is important to me because it's when I prepare my materials for the next day (setting up centers, etc.). I was also hesitant because there will be children in there touching and playing with my stuffs (even though they are not supposed to). I mean, children will be children and I don't blame them for wanting to play with the toys in my classroom. However, having other people in my class just means more work for me...cleaning up, making sure things don't "walk out" of the classroom, making sure the toys/materials are taken cared of, etc. My boss told me she will make sure to let me know and we can "test it out at first". Anyway, a few weeks went by without further discussions. Today I heard someone opening my classroom door. I thought it was the night janitor coming early, but when I went to the door, the person asked, "Who are you?". My reply was, "I'm sorry. I'm the teacher here. Can I help you?" Her reply, "No, I'm the teacher." Me: "uhhh...." So, I called my boss up and asked her what is going on. She told me, "Oh, yes. The daycare person is coming in today. Remember I told you we will have a daycare in your classroom?" I didn't know what else to say so I packed my bags and left, feeling as if I don't have a classroom of my own anymore. I'm so upset. Am I overreacting? I think it's so inconsiderate of my boss to just do this to me. I wish she could have at least told me about this person coming into my classroom. I'm a new teacher. I spent soooo long setting up my classroom and making sure things are the way they need to be. It just feels so wrong to me that this person came in and claimed she's the "teacher". I've never met her or heard of her. She just came in acting like she owned the place! I really need some advice and kind words. Have this ever happen to you before? Please tell me things will be ok? I don't want to return to my class tomorrow and find out all the toys are taken out and thrown about. Also, the time when the janitor comes in and vaccumm is at 5:30 (when the other class/daycare is in session). What will my classroom look like when I return?
