When your principal wants to meet
Fri, 09-18-2009 - 4:21pm

with you, does s/he let you know what it's about? In my case, my principal sends us these "invitations" on Microsoft Outlook which is our e-mail client and there is just a place to check accept or decline. She NEVER tells you what it's about. Isn't this really rude?
I got one a couple of days ago and I didn't know if it was about my annual goals, in which case I would've prepared something to bring with me, or it was something unrelated. I didn't do anything wrong to my knowledge and the meeting was about something we had discussed last month but, this really p** me off.

How's your principal?

I think that is incredibly rude. My principal last year was like that and everything she called you into the office for was negative. She actually called me to her office and told me I was too negative. She once told a teacher in the middle of a staff meeting to "shut up, you're P**ing me off." Thank God I am at a different school this year.

I don't understand why some principals are like this.They all have teaching experience and they know what it is like to be called into their office. What is the point of being secrative?

Like Sallen, I've gotten both ends of the stick, but more bad than good.
