My coworker left herself logged in on our shared computer, which she does on a regular basis. I, like every other time looked at the screen to make sure she was not in the middle of an important task before I logged her off so she would not lose any unsaved work. On this day, as I looked at the screen her emails were up, as I am was closing out tabs I notice one of the headings said, "Situation with", and it said my name. The email was from our principal and I was taken back because I was not aware of any situation that I was involved in that had taken place. Probably not the best decision but instead of closing it I read it. The principle was asking her if she had spoken to me about the situation my coworker had previously discussed with her. My coworker had gone to speak to the principle and made false and exaggerated accusations against me involving students. As I continued reading the e-mail, my coworker responded to the principal saying, "yes, I spoke with her about the situation we discussed in your office and she said, ........... and that should understood it wasn't right and would not do that anymore." What?!!! is my thought as I am reading this. There was one thing that had some truth to it but when conveyed to the principal was exaggerated and taken out of context and the other half was totally false, or pretty much a lie. My main issue is that I was never confronted with these accusations by my coworker, who is my supervisor in the classroom and what troubles be the most is she flat out lied to our principle in telling her yes she did speak to me about it and even worse than went on to flat out LIE and create my response to what "happened", words I never spoke! Help how do I handle this. My coworker has a history and I'm thinking a habit of lying to escape any kind of blame, even common ordinary mistakes that us normal, professional would simply apologize for and make better choices. I have looked up many articles on what to do and also on adult ADD, because she suffers from it but don'f think she medicates herself. She is distracted 75% of the day, always on her cell phone texting or n the computer and when I speak to her she acts like she listening, saying uh huh, or oh yea. She daily does not recall information we have discussed. Just this past week on two different days children were absent. We work with kids one on one and bring them back and forth to and from our class and their home room. I literally had to remind her, both days that that child was home sick at least 6 times. One of the days I told her, remember he is not here today 2 times in 10 minutes. AHHH, I don't know what to do, but I can't keep taking the blame for her forgetfulness either. It always seems to fall back on me. I am newly certified to Teach and am trying to get hired on as a Teacher. I don't wanna rock the boat but I sure as heck am not wanting my reputation or character to be at risk.

I suggest you take this to the education forum where you can get advice from other teachers.

Go over her head and directly to the principal. Nip this in the bud before any heat gets thrown your way or someday down the line you get accused of something and the principal will remember what your supervisor told him. If you let this slide you'll have a "history." That's not a good thing.

Oh and I would also delete this post or rewrite it, stuff like this spread across such a forum is bad form, and can be terms for dismissal. Even when names are not used.

Next time this person leaves there PC open and unsecured.. Send a Letter of resignation or look up some school related porn, that will solve your problem there in a heart beat... and be a valued lesson to this idiot.
