Based on state and city assessments last year, I was an effective teacher for 2013-2014. However, based on last minute last year observations by the interim principal and principal, I was rated ineffective. This culminated after a year of having a crappy program, no permanent classroom, and no resources. I had to get a lawyer and sue to get a classroom and smartboard this year. (True story.) I’m pretty sure that their plan is to give me an ineffective for a second year in a row, to push me out of the school, and teaching in general. Their intervention plan seems designed to generate as much harassment for me as possible and basically makes the job here unattractive to me, to say the least. I’ll finish out this year and then look for another job.
