Poor admin

    I wondered if anyone else had this type of problem. I started in a new district this year. The first day of school my foster child decided to try self-harm. I had to talk to his caseworker etc. He ended up in the hospital for suicidal tendencies. I told my admin that i was "not thinking clearly" that day and needed some time.
    First thing they did was wrote me up for being rude. (Which I may have been under those circumstances, not realizing it). I apologized to anyone I might have offended,
    The next day I told them I still needed some breathing time to figure out what i needed to do. I told them I still was not processing as this was too "raw" as we were going to adopt this child. I was then written up because i had put kindergarten sped students down for a nap for a brain break. It has continued like this all year so far (3 weeks in). I was called a "terrorist" and I had "no qualities of a good teacher" along with several other negative things.
    I was sent to HR for discussion on termination and I have been suspended. This is not the first time I have had a principal treat me this way. I have had a few good ones too.
    If you have had this problem, has anyone stayed at that school and had resolution, and if so, how?
