Re: Pay Your Dues
Back when our Gurus at TEA were devising more hoops for teachers to jump through I had a HS principal that was trying to run me off. He told me I should go for the career Ladder (sarcastically) and Sweepstakes were not enough to get a raise much less keep my job. The district had never made a One in anything. My superintendent (that had hired me) thought I would stay in the job until I retired was clueless until I resigned. My evaluations were horrible with this HS principal. My point: I was clueless of the power structure and it was a rude awakening. Not all administrators are on the same page. I guess the point is: you must kiss everyone's back side always. Caution: beware of everyone!
