Another thread mentioned teachers (sometimes the ones who refuse to bend to certain situations students experience) asking for extensions for their own work due to their principals and so forth. This is something that really annoys me. That is, the complete lack of responsibility and give-a-darn from far too many teachers. When the principal emails us and asks for us to complete a form of some sort, or to respond to the email with an answer she needs in order to do such and such, or be sure to submit this or that by Friday...I DO IT. But more than a couple colleagues will literally laugh at the requests or assignments. And our principal rocks; she's not asking for anything whatsoever out of the ordinary or unnecessary. But she has to send regular messages stating that only four teachers have completed a certain task or only one grade level has submitted something. I know it doesn't usually directly impact me yet I find it frustrating, so I cannot imagine how the principal feels. Are you a teacher who blows off deadlines and such, or do you work to complete tasks in a timely manner as expected from your own students? Do you tend to determine yourself if a task is important and thus decide to do it or not or do it when you "get to it"? And I won't even get started on how HORRIBLE teachers are at faculty meetings and professional developments. It's just awful.
