Hi, ladies, it's Ms. M, but I seem to have forgotten my old username so I had to create a new one.
Anyway, last year, I told you how my admin was all over me about how I'm terrible teacher and that has continued into this year as well. Finally *3 weeks* after she evaluated me again, I finally get the printed copy and of course, it's as bad as the ones from last year. I'm already seeking employment elsewhere; I don't care to work for someone who has inferiority issues, believes things can only be done one way and stabs people in the back.
However, I found at least 3 false things in my evaluation. One was a reference to a selection I never taught nor does it show up in any of the material from which I teach; the second accused me of not teaching the standards I agreed to take on at the beginning of the year--I have proof that I am teaching those standards in the classes I'm supposed to be focusing those standards and the third thing stated that I am not following my plan of assistance by submitting units of study--there was nothing in my plan of assistance stating that I was to continue with those units until I was told otherwise.
Part of me thinks that these were just random screw-ups but another part of me thinks she's trying to pad my evaluation. I have the opportunity to file a rebuttal (which I will) and I'm getting in contact with my building reps tomorrow.
So, how far should I take this? Even if I were doing everything by the letter, this woman would still find fault in my teaching. I truly believe that she has someone in mind for my job and she's just doing what she can to document me so she can fire me (I have tenure, thus all this paper trail on her part). At this point, I'd gladly leave this school. It's an absolute sinking ship and she's at the helm, saying that the board and the superintendent support her but at the same time, I don't hear a lot of parental support. If I could bail now and know I had a job to pay the bills, I would.
