Because I teach a "specials" or "prep" class, I have to deal with a lot of what I consider to be entitled behavior. I'm wondering if this is commonplace in your school as well. When I worked a charter for several years, I was not under the assumption that my prep period was an entitlement that other teachers had to give to me. I simply considered loss of a prep period an administrative issue. However, not all are in agreement. How would your school handle the following? Situation 1: I am teaching a class and their teacher is having a prep. There is a fire and the whole school must evacuate. Outside, I take attendance for her class and sit with them. Their classroom teacher chats with coworkers. Then, she asks me when I will be making up her prep since she is losing planning time by evacuating. What would your school do? Situation 2: All of the teachers who are scheduled for a prep provided by me on a certain day are attending a training. So, they are having subs. My classes are cancelled because there is no reason for a sub to get a prep period, especially since I need to go to the training as well. The teachers then email me to ask when I will provide a make-up prep! What would your school do? Situation 3: Prep is cut 5 minutes shorter due to rainy day schedule, but teachers still receive minimum number of prep minutes (our school normally gives 10 minutes more than what is required). Teacher then asks me to do their recess duty to "make up the minutes." What would your school do? It is frustrating because I have a full schedule as well. If there is a fire drill, rain, or whatever, I am also losing preparation/teaching time. They are basically asking me to "make up" this time during my own preps.
