I have posted before about a terrible classroom situation I am in this year.. I am an aide working with a teacher who has very poor classroom management, is clearly not doing any lesson planning, and the classroom is just (IMO) a very unhappy place to be. There are constant disruptions, kids loudly talking over her "lessons", fooling around, and just general disorder (very messy room). It is not an urban environment, it's actually a quiet suburban area and I honestly can't believe this is going on here. I have started looking for other jobs because I honestly can't take a classroom environment like this. But I just wonder am I crazy to be so put out by this? How would you cope or get by? Would you let an administrator know? I feel like everyone in the school is kind of turning a blind eye to the room and makes excuses for this "veteran" teacher. If this was a new teacher he/she would not be returning... I feel like there are a room full of students not learning at all! It's really not fair. I want to help as much as I can... But I'm not the one in charge and feel limited in what I can do to better the environment.
