OK we had our first accident at our place yesterday. My director being out of town. The other teacher working with me saw it happen. I had her fill out the accident report since she saw it happen, I had her fill out the state report as well since stiches were need in the child. I faxed it to the state. I also mailed a hard copy. Have to have it there by 24 hours. In the afternoon I decided I needed to call the teacher who will be opening in the morning and give her a heads up as to what happened so when that parent comes in an mentions it to her she is already aware. I tell this teacher that I was not there when it happened so and so saw it happen. I said to this teacher this is what I was told happened. I then told her you know I was not there so and so saw it happen she can give you the exact story. OK around 5 a parent who we all love and chat with and have a great relationship with asks where this particular child is because she knows he is a late pick up. I looked to the other teacher working with me and she tells her what happened. I had said that this teacher saw the whole thing I was not there when it happened. NOw the teacher I called (the one to open in the am )called the teacher I was working with to find out what happened. Then she finds out from this teacher that we told this one parent. She then asked her if I said to the parent that I wasn't there when it happened and she told her yes. Well this is really ticking off the one teacher who is to open an she calls me at home in the evening and yells at me saying YOU DON'T say you weren't there you don't tell parents that. That makes us look bad. When I got off the phone with you this afternoon all I could think about was how you kept telling me you weren't there. And how bad that sounds and you shouldn't say that it makes it sound really bad. Like you left or something. She asked me if we told other parents I said NO why would they care it doesn't pertain to them. Have you ever worked with a person like this?
