I would like to get an administrator's perspective about
our situation at work. We have two teachers at our school
who are causing a lot of trouble but our principal won't
get rid of them. They both gossip tremendously, complain
about everything, and are causing a lot of division in our
teams. They are also mediocre classroom teachers without
classroom management and inability to collaborate with our
special education department.
The principal won't get rid of them because one teacher led
a team of students to win first place in a regional science
competition taking the students to the nationals. The other
teacher has great connections with theater programs and
puts together decent plays.
Are these accomplishments worth putting up with these two
teachers who cause so much problems? By the way, both are
new teachers and can be fired without reason.
