Ok this is kind of long and I wil try to be quick about what has happened up till now. I teach a life skills classroom in HS with MR and medically fragile students. We got a new para this year and we found out that this girl had been fired by the district last year because of inaapropriate behavior with an 8th grade student. She has always been a SPED aide. We also realized, after she told us that she herself, used to be a SPEd student a very low functioning SPEd student not just resource, she was in a class a step above mine. SOcially she is high, but mentally she cannot do half the stuff we ask her to do. We have a student that must be fed a certain way because of her Rhetts and we were all trained on how to feed her, after 11 weeks of school she has almost endangered her life because of this and has been recertified 3 times on feeding. She has lost one of our students in PE and alot of other things. Somehow she interviewed for this job before she fired and fell thru the cracks in the district which is how she was rehired. I would say cognitively she is a young 13 year old girl. She loves Hannah Montanna but want to be a grown up (She is 31) she lives in this fantasy world with her boyfriend and this great life. We were close to having her fired, I mean she was having meetings once a week with HR and principals because of things she has done in the classroom. She got suspended fro 3 days because of an incident and we all just knew that when she came back they would fire her, but it seems as if Mama stepped in and got her an atty. while she was out and everything has stopped. We still continue to write her up on a weekly basis, sometimes on a daily basis, and she is still called on it, but I think the firing process is going to be tedious since there are atys involved. Now, Knowing all this, here is my dilemma. We know that she constantly lies about her life, she says she has this boyfriend and has a picture of him on her keychain but we know he is really a locally, MARRIED cop and honestly too far out of her legue. We have caught her in several lies, she has lied about thigns she has gotten in trouble for, like when she lost my student she said I told her to do something and she did it and that was why the student was lost, funny thing was, I was absent that day. So, she has been saying all year she has an after school Job at Godiva Chocolate, well as luck would have it,we, the teachers, discovered about 5 weeks ago, that she does not work at GODIVA and never has. We have not said anything to administrators or anything about it because it has not been an issue to the kids in the class so we just let it rest. Well yesterday during discussion time we were talking about what we did last night and I always ask all the paras and teachers what they did and I asked her and she said she worked, and I said Oh really where? and she promptly replied Godiva CHocolate at XXX Mall. So since we aer studying careers in class right now I asked her to tell us some of her job duties, trying to give her the benefit of a doubt, so the kids could see what jobs they could do and she proceeded to make up stuff that obviously what not a job duty for Godiva. We also trie dto call her on it outside of class by saying we called Godiva to ask a questiona nd they had never heard of her to give her a way to say OhI quit last month or whatever...NOTHING. My dilema is, now one of my students wants to go look at Godiva to see if he can get a part time job there because of what she said, do I bring this whole lie thing up to the administrators or just let the whole thing drop?
