Okay, this might be a little long but I do need to explain how it all happened so I can get a good judgment.
I just started working as a teachers assistant ( Pre K ) Today was my third day. Great class, great teacher, great students! HOWEVER, since day 1- Ive heard my Co-worker complaining about the janitor in school how him and his wife ( wifes a lnch lady but also cleans ) how they dont clean up our classroom because they noticed how she likes to clean up. Shes a very clean woman and she feels bad leaving mess after schoo, so she wipes down the tables and chairs, sprays them and cleans up. She complained to the principal and principal said theyd handle it. Thursday we cleaned. Friday I came in, class was dirty so I cleaned up before students came in. We had a boy who had an ” accident ” in class, and I mopped the mess.. even though the janitor was supposed to do it. Anyway, Friday we decided to just leave the class as it is and hopefully monday it would be clean ( that they would do thier job )… Today I come in class, and its such a mess.. EVERYTHING is as it is! even the chairs arent pushed in, floors are so messy no one swept in days.. things are thrown, no one wiped down the chairs or tables.. etc etc. The teacher came in later ( I cleaned up early today so I can make sure students and parents dont walk into a messy room )– I told her ” btw, the room was very messy this morning, thought u should know ), she went an complained to the principal, again the principal said, ” Its not your job. You and so and so ( me ) should not clean up the room it is not your responsiblity. ” — Anyway we moved on from that problem.
Then, a student threw up. the teacher said shed handle it and for me to take the students and handle them ( go over Abc’s, shapes, etc’s ) until she returns. So I do that while she takes the little girl and helps her get all cleaned up. She comes back to me and tells me she went to ask the janitor to come clean up and she told her that she cant because no one is with her to tak over what shes doing ( Not a problem ) until she said ” What about your new help? Your assistant, why doesnt she do it ” she told her it wasnt our responsibility. anyway, LATER on, the janitor comes down and goes to the teacher ” You told the principal? ” the teacher explained she had to then the janitor goes ” You told her? Your a snitch!” and walked away all pissed off.
Then, a student peed all over himself and the floor. I offered to take him to the bathroom and help him get all cleaned up ( of cours though instructional help not physical as thats not allowed ) So as Im standing in the bathroo with the little boy next to me changing, and Im handing him the wipes, and some paper towels… The janitors husband who is also a janitor WALKS INTO THE GIRLS BATHROOM AND TAKES A PICTURE OF ME! he literally just walked inside.. looked at me, stood infron of me and snapped! I heard the snap, I was in shock I didnt say anything ut he just kept saying ” good, good! ” as if hes reassuring me. wth! I walk out and was confused. Later that day I told the teacher what happened — not knowing if this was normal. She said he did the same with her! He snapped a picture of her too when she walked out of the classroom for a minute while I was in he bathroom with the little boy, because thew new girl in our class needed to use the bathroom and she had to point out to her where to go. She said I didnt move away from the near the class. She stood right outside, but he snapped a pic of her too! She explained how this was not normal and we had to report this to the office but I refused because I felt like this is my third day of work and im already complainign?! but she explained that if God forbid any of the pictures he took ( if he REALLY did take any which im sure of ) were to be put online and the little boy was in, parents might be so upset that the school might get shut down and if not but the principal finds out from another source about him taking the pics, we might get fired.
anyway we did go and I told the principal what happend — but I feel so bad! I dont like snitching! but I mean he did walk rihgt in to take a pic.. at the same time I feel so weirddd going into work tomorow and I just told on another co worker. I feel so evil and unproffesional.
( I noticed theres so much grammer mistakes but Its pretty long and im tired to fix them, so im sorry! )
