That is absolutely no condition to teach in. If your a fighter, then go to
your administrator with this information. But if you just want peace, then
find a new job--at least that's my opinion. We don't get respect often enough
as it is--when fellow employees get in on it--that's my limit.-----Maria

The lunchroom ladies tale:

I really try to get along with everyone, but the school sometimes seems bent
making life difficult for art teachers. We are the only school in our district
without an official art room. This year I finally got a "temporary" room. To
be sure
I didn't get any "fancy" ideas, (that this was permanently an art room, the
administration refused to give me a sink, despite pleas from the janitors who
tired of cleaning up paint and clay in the bathrooms and the lunchroom ladies
sinks get stopped up. The High School got 5 sinks; the Elementary, two, but I
told I couldn't have any because the room might be used in the future for
Then, I began using the janitors closet, right across the hall. After spilling
a few times on the floor, I was locked out, even though I had wiped it up.
Then, the
lunch ladies started locking the doors.When I returned two cups a student
from the lunch ladies, they called me names to the student.

This year is actually an improvement over going into other teacher's rooms and
having them talk behind my back.

Job Description: Art teacher: wanted: someone who knows how to watch their
dodge verbal bullets, wash without water while standing on their head.

Have peaceful summer
