Teacher Abuse


She is a good teacher.  She knows how to get the material across to her students.  She is caring and goes the extra mile necessary to help them succeed.  She gives many hours of her free time tutoring.  She spends lots of money buying them treats to reward good work and to encourage them.  Parents love her because of the extra effort she puts into helping their children. 

Her AP does not appreciate her.  He looks finds fault with everything she does.  He both publicly and privately goes out of his way to humiliate her.   He dislikes her for some personal reason and there is nothing she can do to change this.  He is making her life a living hell.  This AP is lucky I'm not around.  I would know exactly how to not only stand down, but ti buckle under.

I'm not saying this teacher is perfect, no one is.  The AP has been caught in many missteps, both administratively and in his subject matter.  This teacher gets good results and cares.  She inspires.  The school should be thrilled to have a teacher of this caliber and should not be pushing her out the door.

I just doesnt matter how good a teacher you are matters how much you cost the administration and how much you will cheat to get the numbers THEY want!
