I spent the last two days in a really terrible classroom. I'm trying to debate whether or not I should email the principal. Here are the issues: - practically no lesson plans- just a list of page numbers to teach. No sub folder or anything. Not even a schedule- not a copy, not posted in the room, nothing! No procedures, rules, routines, policies, etc... It was 2.5 handwritten pages, with at least .5 a page talking about the broken copy maching. - terribly behaved kids- "I hate you!" "I hope you never come back!" "I don't have to listen to you!" and even worse comments. I've never been so disrespected. - rude office staff- the circus is in town and tickets were supposed to be sent home. She called the room today asking why they weren't- I said I had no idea what she was talking about. She practically accused me of stealing them! At lunch I went down telling her that I couldn't find them and asked if they were in his mailbox (which I didn't know the location of or I would have checked the box), and sure enough, there they were. No apology. - there was vomit on the floor of the classroom for over 4 hours today. A child threw up, I told the rude office staff, and she said she didn't have anyone to clean it up. It was still there when I left. I'm debating whether I should email the P or let it go. The art teacher came into my room telling me I should tell the P how bad they've acted for me- he has also been struggling with this group and it sounds like his pleas are not being heard. I took them outside and showed a history video just because I knew I was going to lose it if I didn't. I'm not that kind of sub!! I did post about their behavior yesterday and they were slightly better behaved today (until the last 30 minutes, anyway). I have already taken myself out of this school for future sub jobs. I worry that they'll report me to the sub service and I could get fired altogether- which wouldn't allow me to sub in any district. That is why I am leaning toward emailing. Aesop has the job ending at 3:59- yesterday I overheard someone saying I wasn't helping with dismissal like I was supposed to. I didn't know- I didn't have plans to tell me what to do! Well, today, I had had it. I walked my bus riders down at 4:00. My parent pick ups are watched by another teacher. So I left- the entire school wasn't all the way dismissed. My classroom was empty and locked and my students were walked to the bus. I literally set the key on the counter despite being glared at by the rude office staff and walked out of the building. My job said it ended at 3:59 and I had no more students. I feel like I'm in the right for doing it. I'm not one who ever swears, but I was tempted to go off while setting my key down. It literally took me over an hour to calm down- I was all worked up. I had to stop and see my 11 month old twin cousins to return back to normal. It took about 15 minutes with them before I calmed down. My eye is still twitching. Anyway---- do I email?
