    that she does need to worry about it, or be prepared to lose her job if she isn't already of the mind, as the author of the letter in the diary, that her job has left her.

    •  This particular teacher (11+ / 0-)

      Is already contemplating leaving teaching...she is very discouraged as she knows this is what she has to do to work in public education. She says she has some friends who work in other districts where this is not quite as bad. She is not naive and knows it is bad and getting worse. Which adds to her being discouraged. She is young, 2 years out...she is thinking of getting her advanced degree in another related area, but not stay with teaching...even though that is really what she enjoys and what she is good at doing.

      Of course she is worried, I told her to just keep that data clip board of hers with her at all times. Even if she isn't taking formal data, it is nearby so that she may refer to or use it quickly should she get another unannounced visit.  She was worried because she saw that she had a one needs improvement on her teacher eval write up and worried about her job...and I said rightfully so...but that she has 2 more evaluations by end of the month so just to be prepared and get her data clipboards ready.

      I think this young teacher just wants to make sure that if she leaves teaching or this job,  it is her decision and not because she was let go by some new, naive and unreasonable administrator who is also trying to prove her own worth to her boss.

      Government of, for, and by the wealthy corporate political ruling class elites. We are the 99%-OWS.
