I am not going into all of it, but, since August I have been doing two people's jobs. There was a small window of a month where I thought the sub they had hired would actually do the job of a teacher, the job they hired her for, since she kept telling everyone she was the REAL teacher but that passed and I continue to do her job and mine.
When I comment to the administrators that I am drowning, they tell me the end is near.
Or that this is what I asked for (going back to gen ed).
PO, I know you keep telling me to shuck it and retire, but I hate going out on this note.
I am petitioning for a job in this school in another department teaching gifted students. If I get it, I will teach another couple of years. If they assign me a single co-taught class, please join me in singing "Take this job and shove it."
And I cannot tell you how freeing that is.
Yesterday, a student warned me that two assistant principals were near (I wasn't doing 100% of what I was supposed to but they were working). And I told her, what can they do? Fire me?
Wouldn't be the worst thing that happened this year.
