Not a Team Player?

Posted 06-12-2010 at 05:50 PM by tangerine

Our AP pulled me aside and said indirectly to me that I was not being a team player by questioning her demand that we add 30 minutes of something to our schedule each day. It's really an hour she asked for, but we were already doing 30 minutes of the one thing -so there's 30 minutes left that she wants that we currently don't have in our schedule.

The thing is........I already have full teaching days. I don't have 30 minutes laying around. I just asked in our team leader meeting what I should drop to add this 30 minutes.

Apparently that was too negative.

Grrr. Now I am feeling really negative!

I submitted my grade level's proposal to her. I'll be interested to hear what she things of our justification for where the 30 minutes comes from.


It's just classic for administration to expect teachers to add components to their day and never take anything away.

What do they think we DO each day? Waste huge chunks of time? Seriously?
