Teacher Life- My special education program has eight students. Two of them have Covid right now. Adults- please keep your act together so school can stay open.

Folks- when you catch a typo, or have a suggestion for a flyer that has already been completed, can you be nice about it? I worked for hours on something and ran it by the bosses. They all approved of it. I sent it to folks today and EVERYONE had to chime in. "Can this be bulleted?" "It should say this instead..." I changed the color scheme, I changed the wording, I had it translated into Spanish. I'm sorry it's not perfect! MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN FLYERS! Or shit, just try to use some nice words! Show appreciation for someone's work. I don't have to do this. It's not part of my job. Feel free to do it yourselves!

Teacher Life Update- Time allowed for special education presentation was moved from 90 minutes down to 45, then down to 15, and then on the day it was scheduled, up to 30. It went great. People seemed to appreciate it. Principal promised more time in the future. I feel like we are getting someplace SLOWLY.

Okay so today I don't hate EVERYONE. LOL. My boss finally FINALLY sat down with me yesterday afternoon to give me some guidance as far as what to do with a couple really difficult clients. It's really amazing what a little communication and a path forward can do for my morale. There are certain decisions I can't make, it's just plain beyond my pay grade. Sometimes it really does have to be his responsibility. Woke up this morning actually feeling rested and good and ready to work. That hasn't happened in a log while. THIS is what I'm supposed to feel like. I still am annoyed by the four cent pay raise, I mean come on. Really? Cough up a half a dollar at least. Why do I care? I have no idea. But I do.

I am married, and so is he. And I've never cheated on my husband. But if I had the opportunity, I would have an affair with my boss in a heartbeat.

The fact that your bosses are up your ass for financial statements does NOT give you the right to treat me like your personal servant. I have 70 other clients that bring me their shit timely and WILL have their work done first. Maybe you shouldn't have told everyone that you knew how to run QuickBooks. Because newsflash: YOU DON'T. I have no clue what it is you think you know about the program, but trust me. You have no idea what you're doing. And the more you fucking harp on me, the less I'm going to be inclined to help your incompetent ass. I already did six months of bank recs for two entities and three accounts all in two days because you don't know how to do something even as simple as that. WHILE getting all my other client work done. And what do you do? Lambaste me with 5 emails a day and say some shit like "I've been waiting 45 minutes for you to call me back."... this is not a call center. Ass hole. Wait your turn.

Teacher Life pt 2- I have worked here for three years and sat through a million meetings that were not relevant to my job. This is the one time he's given me more than 15 minutes on the agenda. I can see now that when we discussed this and he said he was giving me 90 minutes that he didn't really think it through or believe it was important. I sent him a proposal last spring for improving special education planning and collaboration and I'm positive he hasn't read it even though we've met about it twice. I put a lot of energy into advocating for Special Education and teachers in general in my district, but have always let Admins roll over me at my own site because I was too busy fighting for everyone else. I'm done with that. My students are going to get what they need, and what they need is to be part of the plan for the school! Period!

Teacher Life pt 1- Spent four hours Saturday designing a badly needed professional development for my colleagues about Special Education, at my Admin's request. Admin promised me 90 minutes. Looked at the weekly schedule and I am sharing the time with Counseling Services. He did not inform me. Just changed the schedule. I planned 90 minutes of information and activities, and all of it is important. Just shows that when push comes to shove, special education students and students with social/emotional challenges get the short end of the stick. What did he plan for three afternoons this week instead of dedicating one afternoon each for Special Education and Counseling Services? Three days of "Professional Learning Community Planning Time" WITH NO PLAN FOR HOW SPECIAL EDUCATION OR COUNSELING IS INTEGRATED INTO THAT.
