The Truth is out there… and I found it!
And she is a para.
She comes to my class to help my hearing impared students. She takes notes, and just sits there like a lump.
And SHE is the one who destroyed my career at this particular school.
(For more info on this, visit my 7 April 2002 journal.)
Anyway, She was one of the Vice-Principal’s original students many many years ago.
No WONDER the VP knew I wasn’t teaching exactly like her.
Oh, by the way, it was this same lady Para who helped destroy another teacher here, who left last fall. nuf said
I understand now. They want just LOCAL teachers and people from this school to teach at this school. I would never have fit in. Ever. This para wants to go back to school and become an English teacher. I guess she only has two years left. I wish her the best… and the worst students… *eg*
OH well, just wanted to share my little discovery.
Oh, may I say that I NEVER want a para in my classroom until I am tenured. THEN, we can talk about it….
If she meant well, all is well. If she meant harm, may her Karma come back and haunt her.
Goddess, Give me strength!
