Well this subject really caught my attention. I hate to say it but i am
relieved to know it's not me! I travel between two schools everyday. From JR
High to elementary.My Jrhs principal is wonderful but the other...well I
could be here for days listing all the problems. I am so sick of thinking
about it that I can't even type about it anymore. This is one thing that I
thought was pretty funny. She taught elementary for 20 years before becoming
a principal. She was painting something and didn't have any red so she came
to me to ask what colors you need to mix red. Even after I reminded her that
red is a primary color her response was "are you sure there aren't any
colors I can put together to make red?" She also didn't want me to order any
art prints because she felt it was over "their" heads.My question is how can
I receive a meaningful observation and evaluation from someone with such
little understanding. I have never gotten a complement on any
displays,interdisciplinary projects or schoolwide activities (The other
teachers are wonderful). Anyway I started to become bitter and wouldn't stay
to do anything above and beyond the call of duty until my husband pointed
out to me that this negative attitude was only hurting me and the kids. I am
turning over a new leaf and it's going to be nice and fresh and shiny!!!! (
I hope).Now for day 2.
