I wrote about a teacher who I asked for help. She had taught the course I have before and I wanted her to help me by providing a handout.
She got "stressed out" by having a nightmare (seriously!) and did nothing.
Over the summer I asked for help in determining the pacing (I sent her a pacing guide that I had so she could critique it.) So far nada.
She has planned every meeting about this course when I cannot meet.
Do you feel a little hostility? (I know there is some on my part at this point. I am thinking there may be some on hers.)
I will function ok, but it would be easier with ANY help.
Today, we were at a meeting and she kept making belittling comments about a test. And saying to someone else that it was ok if the someone else had comments because SHE (MS Highmaintenance) hadn't written it. I did. The day after the dog died. And there are errors. Which I would have fixed, but I have been re-creating the wheel in the course I am teaching.
Then she looks at me and says "I hear you have material that you copied for New Teacher?" Stuff I found on the Internet.
"Will you make me a copy?"
I looked at her and said sure. But I never said when.
I am thinking when hell freezes over.
How about you? When do YOU think I ought to make the copies?
