NO too worried about my job

I might have. Probably not though.
11/21/2012 8:36 AMView Responses
Certainly not. I value my job, and although stressed and exhausted, my passion
is to teach children. I would not jeopardize that.

No the board and superintendent are bullies and will not allow freedom of speech

probably not. I need my job and could not lose it if a school board member felt the need to “get rid” of a squeaky wheel.

Under normal circumstances I would, but not now, as I perceive the board’s
actions and decisions as being punitive towards staff, and my job is critical to my
families financial survival.

No. I know I would get a bad review and then be let go. They do not value our
opinion and again to quote a board member, we are a bunch of winy teachers.
We have people on our board making decisions and do not value the

Would I want to NO! The reason is they have targets on certain people and will
look for any reason to write them up or give them a bad review. However I am to
the point where if this environment gets any worse, this will no longer be the
right place for me to work. I am a positive, upbeat person, and negativity is not
healthy for anyone. As a district, we need to step back and start creating a better
work environment. It starts with possibly once in a while writing a positive note to
a staff, encouragement, and having a smile on our faces. Right now I can’t say I
see those things. Everyone is crabby, negative, and down in the dumps. I can’t
tell you how many teachers are ready to ask for letters of recommendation, or
are considering a career move. These are amazing, quality, excellent teachers. I
am surrounded by teachers, and do not know any other district that has this hard
working of teachers, while continually giving little encouragement to their staff. It
starts from the top down, and any successful school, company, classroom,
starts with positive leadership. That is not the direction we are currently taking,
instead we are using POWER and CONTROL, Fear Factor, and little incentive
for teachers to want to do more. What is really happening is creating worse
teachers, because we are all so burnt out by November, that we are all just
praying to get through this year. This is not a job where we can lose our energy
or focus. We are working with children that may only get a positive comment or
hug from their teacher, and we can not lose focus of who we are. Whether you are a teacher, administrator, or parent, we can not forget these are the children of our future and administration MUST NEVER forget what it was like to be a classroom teacher. I think some people have lost that focus.
