Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, so, I'm a substitute teacher looking for full time work. I did a 2nd grade class last week for a few days. I followed all instructions left from the teacher and got through both days fine. Now all of sudden the bitch wined to the Principal about how bad I apparently fucked up, and trying to get me banned from the school. I know it's bullshit for four reasons:
1: The class was 'a mess'.
I'm not sure what her standards were, but I had help from the kids picking up for the day. Nothing obvious left on the ground, chairs put in, looked like it did when I came in.
2: I didn't leave notes she requested about students.
This is especially bullshit, as I left a page of typed, detailed notes on her little munchkins on her laptop. You'd have to be blind to miss them. I can list off what I wrote without even thinking about it.
3: There was a rule broken about letting more than one child into the bathroom at once.
Again, she made no detailed note about how apparently this is a big fucking deal at this particular school (and I've worked on and off in 2nd grade classrooms for years). It's a shame and I feel bad about it, but no one said this was a ban worthy offense. I've had bigger screw ups at other schools with less of a reaction. And no, I've never even had a write up before. Just a, "you know you shouldn't have let those students go early, etc etc," sort of thing.
4: She forgot about three schedueling issues that became conflicts later on that other teachers had to help me with. When I showed them the sub plans she had left, they rolled their eyes and went, "Oh not again." Apparently this teacher forgets 'details' like this all the time. It's not my fault she can't plan her fucking day correctly.
I'm not worried about being 'banned' from this school since it's not even my primary age group. I am worried about this going on my record, and I have never heard of a sub being 'banned' from a school after one unsatisfactory report unless it was running naked through the school. It just makes no sense.
I have a meeting with the Principal later this week, anything in particular I need to do to cover my job viability?
