Hmmm... That has actually happened a lot. Not sure what kind of cues (nonverbal or otherwise) that I'm giving off. Of course, if you look at cases around the country, there are lots of teachers getting "in trouble" or fired for the most trivial of reasons. Never mind that a substitute has even less options to protect themselves from a petty vindictive administrator.
It probably has less to do with you and is perhaps more of a reflection on the sorts of stresses/power dynamics those around you are also confronting/enabling; work colleagues, management as well as parents. Who knows. What you do want to do is distance yourself from this toxic mix if you can and by whatever means works for you. and the sooner the better.These sorts of issues are only going to get worse as wages, job opportunities and collapse in work conditions in general, pick up pace.
