Okay ladies... I put this in the prayer/praise sticky but I need some encouragement now!!!
It's my last 4 days at my part-time school job, before I start my full-time school job on Monday. I am literally THIS CLOSE to doing something really mean to a coworker. She teaches in the chorus room in the mornings (so she is borrowing my classroom). I came in yesterday and all of the copy paper had been used (and I get maybe 1 pack of copy paper every month and a half because I just don't go through it very fast). I came in today, and ALL of my personal belongings, classroom files, etc that were in ONE VERY NEAT pile on the desk were all moved and completely out of order from how I had them. Oh, and she took MY files out of my desk organizing bins and put her crap in there. Those desk organizing bins (along with the desk lamp) are my personal belongings, not the school's, and I'm just not sure what's up with this coworker. I know she's probably going "yay I'll get the classroom" but that's not the case at all -- she is the visiting teacher in the classroom and she's only here for 2 periods of the school day.
I couldn't find ANY of my handouts that I had so diligently prepared for my students today, the music that I had taken SO much time to alphabetize was strewn about and re-piled ALL OUT OF ORDER and everything is an "organized" mess. It was organized before, and I didn't mess with HER crap at all.
I guess it's payback from me erasing part of the information she left ALL OVER the white board because I actually had to teach that day... literally she covered the white board with her curriculum and DID NOT erase it before she left, as has been our agreement. When we needed something to stay up, we keep to our sides of the board so that it is easier for the students to find and so that we can actually keep it up. I wasn't maliciously erasing it either, I just had to teach and needed the board space.
I'm SO GLAD that I'll have my own classroom that I don't have to share with anyone next week. I've shared classrooms at other schools with no problem. The person who lives in my classroom in the AM hours doesn't seem to have ANY decorum or know how to be kind to other people. She's already on a LOT of other people's "crap" lists at school, and she now lost the last "friend" she had in the building... from this action alone, and because I'm leaving on Friday.
