Work this week

This week at work has been hard. I don’t know if it a combination of several problems occurring or if it just me getting back into the full swing of things after several weeks and months of not being able to do my job to its fullest. This week has been eventful.

  • The guidance office staff at SHS were informed officially that I would not be returning next year. Many of them are upset that I did not “choose” to stay at SHS. They feel like that I picked CVHS over them. The fact is that I was not given a choice and both locations have pros and cons. Of course this news is now leaking to other SHS staff and students and I am hearing what they think about it and they are not happy. It feels nice to be liked and wanted, but I have no control over the decisions that have been made.
  • A big issue came up at one of the schools concerning a special education student and participation in the WBL program and working with the county office. I do not understand how people who do not understand, know or research the law get into positions of administration. This issue was a lawsuit waiting to happen, and since I am “just a teacher” the administration did not think I knew what I was talking about. I ended up having to contact the county office, which is never good. So now I get to spend the rest of the school year walking on egg shells because the administration is ticked because I went to the county instead of trying to work it out at the local level. I feel like I can’t win. I tried for 2 weeks to work it out at the local leve.
  • I am so tired in the mornings I can barely make it out of bed. I just feel exhausted this week. I have got to get myself back on track.

Hoping for a better week next week.
