Anyone who reads this blog knows that I am not a defender or a fan of "Suits." Once the word "administrator" is in their title, my radar is up, looking for the problems and stress they are bound cause.
To all you teachers who were late to staff development and got a letter:
Tough! You were wrong! Whether you like staff development or not, whether you think it is a waste of time or not, you have to be there and you have to be there on time. If you got a letter for being late or not there at all, too bad about it. You are getting paid to be there. You were wrong. Suck it up, admit you were wrong and vow to be on time from now on. No one letter is going to adversely affect your career.
And, don't whine about the starting time being e-mailed to you. It was your obligation to know what time to report on Monday before you left on Friday.
Even with my big mouth, I have never gotten one of these letters. I've avoided them by following the rules, even the stupid ones. If the admin is looking to get you, following the rules doesn't matter, but why supply a extra ammunition? Why do anything to help them do their jobs? Is the extra hour of sleep really worth it?
