So in ohio, we have our OAT, the Ohio Achievement Test in 2 weeks. Every year they try and pull this crap on our class sceduales. The testing has to be done on certain days and certain times. They always feel the need to rearrange our classes to where all I am doing is babysitting them. I can't pack that many materials onto my cart, I can't do anything where I may need the extra sink the hallway for washing hands...or sitting projects to dry. I go from having 4 grade levels in my day (for all 7 of my classes) to having 6 different grade levels. It is just SO irritating, especially when the prinicpal in charge of all the resource teachers (art/music/pe) says we are not to change our sceduales. Even our union says our building principals can't do this..yet they ALWAYS do. My one princiapl is wanting me to take classes I haven't taught all year b/c of hhow he wants to change them. Another art teacher has to come and teach them (his fault for not following our suggestions from the fall....another problem) it's very irritating and unprofessional. Do any of the rest of you get your classes changed all around JUST so the gen ed teacher can have their planning time?
