Omnipotent Adminstrator

She was a 10 year veteran teacher who requested specific classes for the upcoming year.  The AP said no, blaming someone else, someone everyone knew had no say in how he programmed.  And then, in the middle of a department conference he stopped and offered the class to a teacher with much less seniority.  He then went on to add there will probably be a sixth class in that subject and he wanted her to teach it, something illegal as all extra classes must be posted and offered to everyone.

Everyone knows the AP does whatever he wants and will end up fixing programs so the person he wants will get the extra class but no one could believe he had the audacity to actually say this in front of the staff he supervises.

Union rules mean nothing to him.  He is king.  He has done whatever he wants for years and will continue to do so.  I am so happy to be able to write about this and not live it.

Unfortunately, I'm still living it. Can't wait to retire.

A friend of mine decided to leave the profession, three years ahead of schedule, because of a similar situation. She was being forced, after 26 years, to teach classes she did not want to do and no one else was being hired to fill previous retirements. The school really didn't want the elective department to continue so the admin just made it so impossible.
