I'm a mess...

So, the saga of the bully principal continues for me. Our students made AYP in reading so she can't fire me for students not performing at their best so she's doing as much collection as she can on her own terms to fire me. Of course, this is all speculation on my part, but believe me, I'm good at reading people and she's ticking off things one checkmark at a time and I'm sure she plans on burying me with documentation and paperwork.

My plan is to get out of the job before she can fire me. I've been searching for jobs and working on my resume but to be honest, I feel completely out of my game as far as preparing for applications and job interviews. I had a great portfolio when I was out searching for my first job and you would think that 7 years later, I'd remember and be prepared but I'm not.

Also, I have this intense fear that as soon as I start applying for jobs, my current admin is going to get wind that I'm looking and sabotage my attempts. Am I completely offbase here? I don't know for sure that she would but I have very little trust left in her. What do I need to be doing now to prepare myself?

Advanced thanks for input!

I've been through this with an admin that made up things to add to my professional folder or entered things without asking for
