Hi, I am writing this because I literally do not know what to do anymore. I wonder if anyone has been in my situation and can they please help me. Basically the Deputy Head at my school is making my life and my time at school really hard and really unhappy. Everything I do she finds a fault with. Even if it is stuff that she has previously told me to do. She will embarrass me in briefing by the way that she speaks to me and the things that she says. More recently when it has happened I thought that I was just being paranoid and sensitive but then other members of staff commented to me that she should not be speaking to me like that and that she was not treating me equally. Even filling out forms in the way that she has said, she will give it back to me saying it is wrong. We have a yellow ticket scheme at our school (for the teachers- that is a whole other story)and she has previously been in my classroom, yellow pad in hand, sat at the back and sat and watched me teach (unannounced) whilst taking notes. That really threw me and when I got the slip, it was about my classroom being messy. Yes, it was I agree. I do need to work on that. But the point is that a lot of teacher's classrooms are messy and no one else got a slip. Besides which comments on my slip said I should tidy the shared area outside my room. I share that area with Year 2 and nothing was said to the Year 2 Teacher. I was given 2 class assemblies and a class presentation to do in one week and when I questioned her about it she said that the head had said that it was fine. I asked the head and she said that wasn't correct and moved one assembly for me. I dread going to school. I am scared to go to her for anything. I know it sounds silly but it is the way I feel. I have spoken to my Head (briefly and will do again today at my Perf Mgt). The Head is great but she is not always there as she is Head over two schools. I also asked her not to say anything cos I am scared that if she does it will make it worse. I know I sound really silly and pathetic but I just literally cannot cope anymore. My plan was to stay till July (or go earlier of a job came up) but the way I feel right now, I want to leave immediately and go on supply. Please can someone help ,me. I can't keep going like this anymore.
