By now everyone knows that the letter about my campus concerns was not addressed to my School Improvement Officer. She already knows everything there is to know about the policies, and the problems; she created them herself. She is AP Maloney's previous principal and best friend; many of my complaints featured Maloney. With this in mind, why would anyone give her my letter and then allow her to address me about the issues I brought forth? Not only that, the High School Office received my letter on October 9th, 2012. A month later this woman is nagging at me, and consistently harassing me, about a letter that isn't addressed to her, and doesn't even mention her. In fact, my letter isn't even addressed to Grier. I simply sent him a copy.
An employer with integrity and decency might have shared my letter with Davila, but they wouldn't have allowed her to interrrogate me about the contents. Her lack of civility is well documented common knowledge. She wants to oppress and stifle anyone with an opinion (oppression is at cross purposes to education). In my case she has no history of communicating reality back to the base camp; she lies. And, if it's true that the High School Office actually required Davila to question me about my letter all they had to do was send me a quick email, and I would have respectfully capitulated with a tape recorder.
Healing our differences would have been impossible; my problems had everything to do with my administration, and nothing to do with my students.
North Forest ISD is about to be plucked like a peach, and it is Kashmere's closest neighbor. The Apollo Program itself is under scrutiny as funding runs dry and student accomplishments dwindle. It appears that Dr. Grier will allow Davila and her administrators to stomp out anyone that even remotely resembles a threat to their gravy train, and their perceived glorious rescue of NFISD. I guess because of my tendency to practice my First Amendment Rights, I fall into that category.
This document proves I was under the gun for my letter. If I needed her assistance, wouldn't I have asked for it? If I was too busy to meet, I must have already experienced "closure."
My next post will prove my principal's signature is meaningless and without honor.
I SHOULD ADD THAT ANYTIME MY SUPERIORS AT KASHMERE WANTED TO MEET WITH ME, THEY WOULD SEND THE SECRETARY TO MY CLASS (WITHOUT WARNING) AND HAVE HER SEND ME TO THE OFFICE. SHE WOULD WAIT WITH MY STUDENTS WHILE I WAS GONE. THIS WAS NORMAL PROTOCOL, AT LEAST IN MY CASE.
I DIDN'T LIKE IT, BUT THAT IS HOW THEY MET WITH ME.
DAVILA EMAILING ME ABOUT MY LETTER WAS JUST SIMPLE HARASSMENT, AND NOT NORMAL PROTOCOL FOR ME. IT WAS AN INTRODUCTION TO THE VERBAL ABUSE TO FOLLOW. WHEN HER TONE AND BODY LANGUAGE STARTED TO GET UGLY, I JUST WALKED OUT. THE FACT THAT MY ADMINSTRATION WAS ACTIVELY SABOTAGING MY SUCCESS, AND BY PROXY MY STUDENTS, HAD ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED.
