Dont post that much on here now but I need to get this off my chest. Fully staff meeting in school, we all had to go in. This so the HT could tell us all how great he is and that he is going to a new job. Yeah great but why do I have to sit through 35 min of you telling us that you are great. Just go and do one. Then we had the normal retirement. People standing up saying how great this old boy is, how he is a true inspiration and was born to be a teacher, loved by everything and has done so much for every pupil ever to set foot in his class. Now as a Guidance teacher I had real issues with this guy, refused to do bi level classes, he would just let the nat 4 fail/not complete the course. Refused to teach any Nat 5 if they were in his Higher class. Told people they were not clever enough for his subject (yes he was a science guy) I had battles with him as he refused to teach people in his class. PT would say that is just his way, but he gets good results. Yeah anyone can teach the clever kids. In short I just wanted to get up and tell the truth....Am I just a grumpy old man\\?
