I'm at the beginning of my second year of teaching. I have absolutely NO support from administration. In Feb, I was put on an action plan for class management. I do not believe the majority of the issues I dealt with were my fault. Currently, we are a month into school and I wrote my first two referrals of the year. One student slapped another in the back of the head and the other student attempted to slap them back but luckily missed. No it was not play fighting...I wouldn't have wasted my time writing the referrals. Anyway, they came into my class yesterday bragging about how nothing happened and their referrals were "excused". According to the copy of the referral I received from the office the consequence was a "conference" with the 10th grade principal. I attempted to speak with her but found out she is out until Tuesday. Needless to say I am furious. When I have fights all day everyday this year the building principal will tell me I "lack classroom management". I've called home, had hall conversations, switched seats, provided a reward system (did a mention I teach HS!), etc. I spoke with a couple of other teachers at the school and both said the typical consequence for that situation is suspension. *sigh* I'm so tired of working a job with no classroom, no stock room, no resources, "low track" students, and NO support. I'm spending my money as fast as I can make it, putting in 12 hour days, and this is how they do me. Any advice other than me going in there Monday and giving the principal a piece of my mind? Thanks!
