I am thankful you have a Plan B and I think you should use it. I also think you should make sure to speak up about why their service is so unsatisfactory. Jenny seems to have no idea that she is supposed to be serving the children. Making kids cry and then chastising them for having feelings JUST DOESN'T CUT IT.

I'll tell you the truth. I have spent a lot of time working with kids and a number of my previous coworkers would fit this description. I think it would go a long way for you to speak up and talk with the manager about this person. A lot of people confuse "control" and "rigidness" for being firm and predictable. And a surprising number of adults forget that children are whole people with a personhood of their own. This woman would make a fantastic dental hygienist, but not such a great caretaker of children.

I really disliked working with personalities like this. A lot.

Does this woman have a track record of this sort of thing? Is it possible that she was having a really bad day? Not that that excuses her behaviour, but it might change how you go about addressing it. As a teacher and knowing lots of great teachers, we've all had Miss Jenny moments due to unfortunate circumstances/bad luck/crazy things going on in our non-teaching life.

Yeah, she does have a track record. It hasn't been this pronounced in the past but it was not unexpected. :-(

The former DRE at our church was this way. Awesome, right? Hope Petely and Stella had a better time on Monday.
