I've always had great evaluations and references until this year. I was not a good fit at my new school, and although I did my best I could do nothing right. On my two evaluations, I am checked as 'satisfactory' and 'very good' but the principal wrote in practically no compliments or feedback whatsoever. I had no idea how the principal really felt towards me until I asked for a letter of recommendation. What I got was a letter that stated that I worked there, was always on time, but nothing about how I performed as a teacher. I feel that I can't use this principal as a reference because now I have no idea what they might say. I can't really go into detail because I don't want to be identified just in case, but this has been an awful and unfair year and I can't believe this might tarnish my otherwise excellent record. How can I get around this? I have to list my employment there, but I don't want to put this principal as a reference. I have some letters from other teachers there, but that's it. I have great letters from previous principals and colleagues, and copies of all previous evaluations and observations that are a stark contrast to the ones I got here. What should I do? Will I be asked why my most current principal isn't listed as a reference? Will they call anyway? Will anyone even give me a chance for an interview? I just can't believe how this has happened.
