Ok, hereís my vent...

Iím changing grade levels next year. Admin asked all teams to submit their plan for teaching math next year.
New team emails their plan. The reply is great job team! You did a fantastic job. Thatís do awesome. Etc,etc.

Current team emails pretty close to the same thing one day later. Admin reply was oh ok.

Omg! Not too hard to see who she likes better! So interesting to see both sides.

OMG! Iím ing right now. The favoritism in our building is so bad itís actually a standing joke with my team (the least favorite). And our P hates me. She actually sent out an email that weíve named ďThe GreyhoundGirl emailĒ because, even though everyone does it, she called me out on it.

Joking about it is the only way to handle it.

I bet this happens in every school. At least you are moving to the well liked team??

My P doesn't hate me, but the interventionists in our building are definitely her favorites and put up on a pedestal. Last year she wanted to send us all to this tier 2 math training.

I'd actually been using some of the program (with no training of course, training was recommended when the interventionists were to begin using it) already that year. I said that it wasn't really effective for the lowest students as it's a tier 2 program. I mentioned that I use the materials, but only had 1-2 students who could actually go through the program as expected.

P and interventionists acted like I was being totally ridiculous. This program was the best thing since sliced bread. Fast forward to the beginning of this year when interventionists actually begin using said program. Within weeks, they say it doesn't really help the lowest students and we probably need to develop something more tier 3. Absolutely no acknowledgement that I'd been saying that all along. P helps them out with resources and more training immediately .

What is it with favorites??? Seriously???? Does admin not realize what it does to morale????? It’s sooooo easy to see who they are in my building. We had to submit a classroom management tip to our P, and she typed it up and e-mailed it to us. By one tip, ONE, out of 20 she wrote what an amazing idea it was. The idea wasn’t any better than anyone else’s.

Iím moving to the team she likes. It will be interesting to see how she treats them. We have a horrible colleague that we have to deal with. This person keeps us from being able to be a cohesive team. Sheís a terrible bully. So our P takes it out on all of us. I wonít miss that person at all!

Our school has that. The team can do no wrong!!! Every other team is compared to that team. I am on the least liked team by the P, but the most liked team by all the specialists and Title 1 Department. So many people dislike the favorite team. You are not alone.

It's like that in the work force as well. It's things like tenure and unions are needed.
