I ran my pink sheets downstairs today and while I was gone, another teacher came into my room looking for me.
First, I don't like sending students out for errands like that, they should be on the computer. Second, I need the exercise.
So I come back into my room, to find the other teacher ON HER CELLPHONE. I had to wait for several minutes for her to end her conversation before I could even find out what she wanted.
Here's the issue: 1) she was disrupting my students, and 2), the principal said no cellphones in classrooms by teachers.
I did tell her that I found the behavior objectionable, and that she owned my students an apology. She said it was okay because it was school business.
NOT IN MY ROOM IT ISN'T!
