"Hello Mr Teslasmate, I'm [pointless management lackey]". "Hello Mr [pointless lackey] what can I do for you"? "I would like to come and observe a lesson next week"? "Certainly which one would you like to see"? "Well next week is observation week, so we are dropping in unannounced on all staff at some point. You will need to do a lesson plan for all your lessons next week". "I can't help you with that. I'm not willing to prepare plans for every lesson". "You have to". "No I don't. I'm a supply teacher. I don't work for this school, and am not subject to the performance management system". "But you work here, so will be observed". "That's not a problem, but I will be teaching my usual lesson with no extra bits bolted on to jump through hoops". "But you have to play the game, in order to allow us to discuss how to develop your teaching". "You can't develop me, only I can do that. You are welcome to observe any time, but I will not be doing any performance management". "I'm in charge of [meaningless management position title], it's my job to support coaching". "I don't work for this school, and am not interested in taking part". "Don't you care about being a better teacher"? "What's your specialism"? "I'm [meaningless management title], but before that I taught PE". (teslasmate thinks, of course you did). "Then you have nothing of use to tell me about how to teach physics. Looking at you, I'd also say that I have been teaching longer than you". "I think you are very rude". "I think you need to appreciate you have just told me you intend to demand extra unpaid work, in order to allow you to determine how you can create extra unpaid work for me to 'develop', on the basis of absolutely no knowledge or understanding of what I do". "I will be reporting this conversation to the head". "Fell free, and he can make the decision about whether he wishes the only physicist in the school to leave today". "You wouldn't do that". "It wouldn't be my choice, but if dismissed I would be in a classroom again inside a few days". "You are impossible". "No, just not willing to kowtow". "What does kowtow mean"?
