I just need need to vent for a minute.
At work, we are required to have certain "tight" items posted in our classrooms. These things include: a class schedule, the objectives for the week, and our lesson book open on the desk.
Today my AP came into my room during my LA block. She sat by my guided reading table and watched while I administered a group portion of a standardized test to 5 kids. I asked her several times if there was anything in particular she wanted to see. She said no, she was just doing a walkabout.
Before she left, she gave me a carbon copy of the observation form. What does she put? That my objectives and class schedule are not posted. But they were posted!!!!
This is the 2nd time an administrator has "dinged" me on an observation claiming something was missing. But it wasn't. They just didn't see it.
I get it if my AP didn't see it, But I asked her if she needed to see anything. I would think that would be the perfect time for her to say "I can't find your objectives or schedule". I could then point her in the right direction. And if I didn't have it, I would have said so. It's not like I could have whipped it up right then.
I'm irritated that I feel like I have to do all this stupid work for them. It doesn't make me a better teacher. My K students can't read the objectives!!!!
