AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! My teammates are anything but a team to me. They are so selfish and clique! I am new to the grade but not to the school. I have always thought they were too into their little clique but never cared becuase it didnt effect me. Now I am part of this grade and it drives me nuts. They dont include me in things, never give me my "in" teacher day for recess (they decide not to go out and then I dont get my break), they share ideas but not with me, my ideas are never good enough to my face (but then later I see them implementing me), they never check to see if I need anuthing or offer to help... the list goes on. I am very sensitive and this is eating me up. Another colleague sensed what was going on and she feels they are all intimidated by my energy and creativity. They are all in a rut and I guess I could be making them nervous, but geez include me in on things and maybe we could all have fun TOGETHER and help our kids learn. A parent also made a comment on how the others should learn from me. SO maybe they are jealous or intimidated or whatever, but their poor attitude and lack of inclusion is only making me want to work harder at what I do. Their plan is going to backfire! HA! Okay as I said I just needed to vent. Can you tell it has been a hard day with them? Thanks for listening!
