Our Principal Tells Us We Cannot Teach!

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about principal who criticizes:

I work in a charter school. My co-workers and I are dedicated to our field and enjoy teaching. We just cannot deal with our principal.She tells teachers who have years of teaching that they cannot teach. She pulls teachers into her office and asks them what makes you think that you know more than me. She just makes you feel that you are worthless. We at the school do not know what to do.

We are all afraid to complain, because we do not have a union to protect us. Even if we do decide to complain we don’t know if we can trust anyone. She has blocked some teachers from getting hired at other schools because she is so well liked by the company.She creates a stress level in the school that can be felt by visitors. Any help or advice would be appreciated. I am currently thinking about just quitting, but I have children to support and cannot do so. I feel sick when I get ready for work, I try to avoid her as much as possible. What can teachers at charter schools do? Who can they go to for help?If you use this PLEASE DO NOT USE MY EMAIL ADDRESS. I MAY GET FIRED.
