When you start getting emails outlining your behavior and all the things you didn’t do.. it’s probably happening.

IMO, not making waves isn’t a bad thing as long as you’re still getting your job done well. If you’re negative or always being carried by your team, that’s when the serious conversations start. serious conversation -> PIP -> ongoing coaching -> decision at end of PIP Also, I know people say PIPs are for the firm to cover its ass (and they are), but I’d much rather see a successful outcome to a PIP than a failed one. Trust me.

You’ll be given a PIP first, likely. That covers their bases to fire you later

If your worried about it, there might be a reason. If it’s not warranted you should publicize what you’re doing emails chats

Are you doing a good job? Or just skating by? If you are putting in all your effort and not meeting expectations then you need to address that with your lead. Either you don’t have the fundamental skills to do the work and/or you are not putting in enough effort. Part of this job is also showing up and doing it which is bulk of the success.

Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.
