I'm going back to work this morning and my head is still about to explode. This past couple of days my migraine meds haven't done their job. That happens once in a blue moon. Usually they work brilliantly. My main thing is that I am being evaluated this morning. That's no big deal except for the fact that I'm being evaluated by a "newbie" who only taught a few years - no so well, mind you, I witnessed it myself - and who has now moved into a supervisory role, with no training nor degree in that role (that's just how it works). She's been notorious this year for giving bad evals to people. She gave me a poor "walk-through" eval back in October. In a walk through, a supervisor is supposed to come in - without warning obviously as it should be - and bring a notebook to document what she sees. She is supposed to stay a minimum of 15 minutes on a walk-through. When she did my walk through, she stayed maybe 45 seconds and documented nothing. My math students were finishing a test and those who were finished were either reading a library book or working on an art project. It was the end of the lesson, and everyone was productive and I was sitting in the back of the room with three students who need help in test-taking and was answering their questions. I had all the finished tests in my lap and was trying to grade while helping those three students. I received a poor on the informal eval and she wrote on there that the students were "not engaged in learning anything and they were just coloring color sheets". She said I was "doing paperwork and not teaching". All of that was completely untrue. I won't go into how that drove me over the brink and how I sinned in my heart against her. Just remember me today. She is doing my formal eval which will count towards my keeping my job - literally. This one will be turned in to the state department. I'm not worried about my teaching. I won't be putting on a dog and pony show, but only doing what I always do. My concern is that if she doesn't follow the rules of formal observation like she didn't follow the rules of informal observation and if she does to me what she did to me back in October - it's not going to be pleasant. I don't want to be unpleasant. But my head hurts really bad and I've been listening to others who've received bad reviews from her and I just want to be what God wants me to be in this situation this morning. I don't want to be ugly to anybody today.
