But would that have been too obscene to explain to me in the privacy of the principal's office?

It would have been entirely reasonable for you do expect her to explain it rather than expecting you to act entirely on her say so. Period. Frankly any half decent administrator would have probably beat you to that punch and taken responsibility for a more equitable and useful discussion of the matter.

Career teacher here. The principal handled the situation incompetently.

Ya know... to this day, I have no idea what a principal does.   Don't know

I worked at a high school and Jr high that had principals
but... other than being a middleman for someone else's complaint about me I never detected that they were engaged in any productive activity.  :D

Their secretaries seemed to be working.  They were the ones who gave me the forms and lists and schedules I needed and knew who to call about what, but the principals?  I'm stumped.  :/

What was the maths teacher's name? Could it have been a students' acronym shorthand for something unkind about her? If it was Theresa Elliott (say), that might fit...
