So one of my best friends begged me at the beginning of the school year to help w/the PTO, we took over. She is President & I am VP. We walked into a HUGE mess, big mess that will take to long to go through everything. But many times I just wanted to throw my hands up & say forget it.
Anyway, 2 of the teachers were real close to the President & Treasurer last year, they handed these teachers money upon money no questions asked, they ran things illegally, we will probably owe the IRS 1000's this year that we don't have bc our PTO was ran into the ground.
Well anyway, I took over as yearbook adviser as well. For 2yrs we were suppose to have one & of course they didn't follow through. Well our 2 editors are teachers & 1 of them is one of the teachers that is real close to last years President & Treasurer (mind you these 2 have spread rumors, tried to stop everything we are doing & just have been horrid) & now I'm dealing w/this teacher. Not the first time but the first time I really have to work so close to her.
Well I am ready to rip my hair out. She was a down right bi--- (you get what I'm saying) to me, my friend that I roped into being my co-adviser & the training rep I had come in today.
We are starting so late in the year, we only have 6 weeks to get our yearbook complete, I really do not have time to butt heads w/people all bc they are friends w/people who failed at doing their job.
When did this not become about the kids? I swear I feel like I'm in high school again, I can not believe teachers behave this way & I really don't have the patience for this crap!
I am not sure how to handle this really. Sticky situation to go & complain about a teacher, especially when we walked into such a mess. It took us so much time to get most of the teachers to trust us, a ton of time to get them to understand that what we are asking for is the way it should have been from the start.
The new principal (who since she is new had no ties to anyone) is out for the next 6 weeks so we can't go to her.
So I have to handle her myself & I'm really just frustrated!!!
