You all will love this one!

Our ap (who right now is acting p) was walking through classes the other day. In one of our kinder rooms she saw a parent that was working on shared writing with a small group. They had been sounding out words, and on the board was "butrfli". Great sounding out, right? Oh, no - the ap approached the parent (who is a lawyer, so not even a second language learner or anything) and told her that she had misspelled butterfly and needed to change it. Then she approached the teacher later in the day about it!

What makes the whole thing worse IMO is that this ap was actually a kinder teacher (which is pretty rare in admin!) and has had two kids go through our program recently.

Needless to say, the teacher had all of our support when she told the ap that she was wrong to correct the parent helper...

That would be hilarious if it weren't so damn wrong and sad. WTF?!

And there is probably no way that ap would EVER understand that she was wrong.

Last year, my AP came in to do an informal observation. We were doing a writing activity on a Monday- Weekend News. I did a mini lesson on my whiteboard- using inventive spelling. In my write up- the AP questioned why I did not correct the grammar in my writing model- go figure- this a person who is evaluating K teachers- I wrote a 3 page rebuttal/ explanation explaining how kinders learn to write- file under- I haven't got a clue- scary- huh???
