What you did was so right. God forbid he did this to the kids when they are using the bathroom. It seems so creapy.

I would be afraid that he will do something shady with the pictures. Taking photos of your coworkers who you are upset with is not normal. Especially since you were in the bathroom with a little boy…what if he tries to claim sexual abuse and uses the picture as “proo” or something? You did the right thing by reporting it!

@Mrsgurzakovic:  Unmm, please stop being so hard on yourself because you did exactly what you should have done in that situation. That is not normal behavior and the principal needs to know what is going on at the school. By going to he principal you might have saved your a$$ in the future if that picture was to be used against you.

seriously, this janitor sounds creeeeeepy. Don’t feel guilty AT ALL. you did the right thing.  And you have a teacher with experience and who seems to be in good standing with the principal to back you up.  I hope you don’t have to see them for too much longer!

This is weird…do you think he’s trying to blackmail you so that you don’t complain? It’s better to stay ahead of these things by reporting them to the principal.

That isn’t snitching that is protecting the rights of a child (or anyone) not to be photographed in the bathroom!

That janitor sounds extremely creepy. You should not feel guilty at all. And if things are a complete mess and the cleaning isn’t being done, you’re not a “snitch” for trying to get the problem rectified.

But that picture-taking seems like something that should result in an instantaneous firing.

You did exactly what you should have done. You are in the right. 

The janitor is a jerk! Not doing is job, getting angry when being in trouble for not doing his job and then taking weird photos?!?

NO! Not cool.

At least you know you’ll get a glowing review from your teacher! I’m sorry that your first three days have been so messy. But it sounds like you are doing a fantastic job.

Holy ****! No way should the janitor be photographing children at school without permission under any circumstances!!!! I just re-read and maybe the children aren’t in the photos, but the principal should be demanding to see the photos. (Even if it’s just you it’s still wrong, I must add). That guy should be fired.

You did the right thing. Child protection is #1.

Snitching? What are you guys, students instead of faculty? The janitor needs to realize that he is an ADULT, and he should act like one, too! I would definitely go to the principal and get it settled out, because if he realizes he can walk over you and the main teacher, the year is going to be a long and hard one for you, especially as a TA!
