Any advice? Here's the deal-- My new principal is so nitpicky. We have to turn in lessons plans a week in advance. That in of itself is a little annoying for me because I have 5 preps-but I can work with it. The problem is she wants incredibly detailed plans. She has specifically been complaining about my success criteria-they weren't specific enough. She met with me and she made it clear that she wants numbers. So, I added numbers. Still not right. Then she asked how my AP/DE kids know they're being successful. (We do lots of discussion and close reading, and there is not a set answer or number, because every reading speaks differently to each kid.) I told her this, and she said I need to formatively assess them. I do-conferencing, questioning, looking at annotations, etc. She wants something written, almost every class. She said it needs to be quantifiable-data. I spend so much time writing lesson plans-4 hours or so-it leaves me little time to work on the actual teaching part. Now, if I had my planning everyday, it wouldn't be so bad, but we have meetings 3 days out of 5 every week. The whole faculty feels like this-every Monday we talk about how angry she makes us. I really love my kids and my classes and my colleagues. I want to tell her to go jump, but I can't. She didn't bother to learn my name until a few days ago. Any suggestions on how to deal? I'm hoping she'll get bogged down as the year progresses, but right now, I spend my Sunday evenings trying to fix what she doesn't like and cursing.
