My HT recently asked me to stop asking questions at staff meetings because 'everyone rolls their eyes' as soon as my hand goes up. I know that this isn't the case at all, indeed from time to time colleagues have even thanked me after meetings for asking a question or raising a point that they didn't feel confident enough to do. I am confident that I haven't 'hijacked' meetings or wasted time in them, but neither have I nodded my head and feigned understanding of things which I know that some colleagues do. She suggested that in future I sit next to her or DHT during meetings so that I can quietly ask any questions. I pointed out that it was usually herself or DHT running the meetings, so it was suggested that I write down any queries on a post it note and speak to either of them after the meeting. I have kept quiet since the request, but now feel my CPD is being compromised as unlike other staff members I can't ask for clarification on issues which might arise. I would welcome any suggestions / advice. Thanks.
