Hello, I am finishing up my third year of teaching. I have had quite the roller coaster career so far. I have been having problems with my principal through out the year. My first two evaluations were pretty good. Out of 18 areas evaluated only 3 were areas of concern in December and 2 in October. My last evaluation was a nightmare. 13 out of 18 areas of concern and recommendation to not renew my contract for my tenure year. Since January my principal has been questioning everything I do. She keeps digging and digging. She questions me about why I am grading a certain way, even though the other teachers around me do it exactly the same way. I mentioned this to her and she tells me it is not about them it is about me. She is constantly comparing me to other teachers concerning what they are covering, and how many grades they have in. She wrote in my evaluation that I do not work well with other teachers and do not ask for assistance from experienced teachers, but in the same evaluation she wrote that I asked for the district's curriculum from other teachers and complained to her when it was not given to me. I found out recently that she has the master copy of all the curriculum for all grade levels in her office and she did not give me a copy. Now I am stuck with the option of trying to fight the non-renewal and probably loosing or resigning and trying to find a job in a state that has very few openings. I just don't understand how in December I was doing a good job, and three months later I am a failure. I have tons of parent support (they don't know about this yet) and the students like me. I help and get along with all the staff (teachers, office, custodians). Any comments would be appreciated. thanks.
