Today I saw them interviewing someone...turns out it was for science...I don't know which position it was for. I asked my principal if I could speak with him for a few moments after school...he said ok...but didn't seem to happy about it. I talked to him first about our science tournament, and how that went...again...no real response. Then I started talking about how I wanted to update him on my progress, and the things I have been doing to try and improve. He nodded most times...and said he had been asking my deparment head if I had been doing certain things...and she said yes. He said he was concerned b/c one day he walked by and I was at the computer...and the kids were talking. He went to the computer guy, and asked him to pull up my screen...and they saw that I was looking up science sites (all legit he said)....but that I should be doing prep work at night...not class. When he went back to come tell me about it...he saw that my powerpoint was up and I was teaching again. I always incorporate websites...videos...facts...into my lectures...so I'm sure that was the case...but he told me I need to be "bell to bell" teaching. So...that was a set back today. I'm really not sure what to do at this point. I just want them to be honest with me...so if they don't want me back...I can look for another job before it is too late. I am still trying to put my resume out there...sending things...but no responses My next formal meeting is the end of this month. The AP and P still have to formally review me. The AP came in today informally to give me some tips, but she was busy afterschool so I couldn't speak with her. She said she would come back to another class too. I want to still fight for my job if I have a chance...but if I don't...then I don't want to waste energy trying to prove myself. Sorry...not feeling too happy right now Hope you all had a better day than me.
