Does this irritate you? As far as I know, no teachers are supposed to leave. If they do, they're supposed to have their principal's permission and sign out. I have 1st period off, and I see the same teachers leaving to get breakfast, etc. Part of me is upset because I am actually doing work, spending every precious minute I have. The other part of me is upset that they're getting away with it. I have to go to another building for copies, and I'll see some of them driving off or coming back with McDonald's in their hands. I mean, we are getting paid, so how can you justify leaving school grounds and still get paid. Our principal is understanding. If you need to run to the bank or something comes up, he'll let you go. However, I haven't missed a day, and I haven't ever left campus. I'm sure many other teachers are like me, and I appreciate that. However, these few teachers tick me off. It's almost like they have a little party every morning. Would this irritate you to know this is going on? Also, I notice they leave before the time they're supposed to. We're supposed to arrive at 7:40 and leave at 3:40. I know for a fact that some of them leave at 3:20, only 5 minutes after dismissal (next to impossible). My principal is awesome, and I don't want to seem like a snitch. But, if this bothers me, it's probably bothering other people. To me, it's the same as teachers who have last period off and try to leave right after teaching. You just aren't supposed. No one at my school (that I know of) does that, but I've heard this happens at my friends' schools.
