I'm hoping this will be the last story about SS teacher. Like I said before, it's very, very difficult to be fired by our district. The most admin can do is make life difficult for bad teachers and encourage them to read the writing on the wall, and bow out gracefully.
Yesterday was the final day of our standardized testing. We currently have 3 teachers out with chronic illness issues, so the teacher that WAS proctoring SS's tests was needed elsewhere... no choice but to let him test his students.
1. SS teacher comes to the testing materials room (they are tightly controlled) 3 minutes before the final bell to pick up his materials.
2. SS teacher realizes he has a big class and would like to test in the small auditorium instead of his room, so he demands that our strategist "open the theater for me right now." Meanwhile, kids are piling up outside his door and not knowing why their teacher isn't there and the room isn't open.
3. Strategist asks him if he has moved his snacks down to the theater. We give the kids bars/juice right before testing. He said, "This is ridiculous, they are 14 years old, they don't need snacks!" Basically, he didn't want to move his things down to the theater. Another teacher had to say, "Look SS, this is part of our testing procedure... get them their snacks and do it now."
As you may have read/could expect, admin has been on this guy's rear end all year. Yesterday in the staff lounge, he announced that he was moving back to home state to get his MBA and found his own magazine. I wasn't there, but according to others he said, "I don't want to work for anyone but myself! I can supervise myself."
I'd say he's made the first part abundantly clear this year, as to the second part, we shall see. Here's hoping his replacement is super awesome.
