Limits

Something for consideration:

Every time you ask a teacher to complete another piece of paperwork without taking something away, a bit of goodwill dies because I already find it hard to find my mouse under all the paper you give me.

Every time you add a data collection point in the year without taking something away, a bit of goodwill dies, because I already have to do 3 entries per student per collection point and that many clicks is horrible.

Every time you add something that’s ‘just 5mins per student’, a bit of goodwill dies, because I have almost 100 students and just 5mins adds up fast.

Every time you change a policy without consulting the people it will impact, a bit of goodwill dies, because I want my opinion to be respected, just like you do.

Every time you introduce or move a deadline without warning, a bit of goodwill dies, because I plan my time according to what needs to be done.

Every time you tell me ‘what Ofsted wants’ a bit of goodwill dies, especially when I know you’re mistaken.

Every time a concern about a student comes back as ‘what are YOU going to do about it’ a bit of goodwill dies, because If I could do something, I would already have done so.

So don’t be surprised when I don’t jump to volunteer any more.
