This is starting to get ridiculous. In the past two weeks I have spent more time filling out forms or academic explanations of why students received the grade they earned, training for "Out of the Darkness" and grade distribution by demographics, than I have planning. I have spent my free time doing these things which are burning myself out of this school. I love to teach, but I am also in a classroom teaching a subject well, is okay. I am switching to Middle school science next year, first of all because I love the Earth sciences. Second, Middle school has less BS forms to fill out and hopefully the parents will play more of a role in their students education. Every week in my district I am given a form to show that I am not showing movies every day. On average, I am getting observed about once every two weeks. I am under constant scrutiny of admin and others above me allowing students a second chance at bringing up a grade. We NEED to offer "On-going" recovery if students have a poor semester. Yes I am a new teacher, but I am not a poor teacher. Let me teach. Sorry about the rant, but this is really getting on my nerves.
