I think I have a kick me sign on my forehead. Every year of teaching, there is always one staff member that feels the need to verbally be rude to me. I am a friendly person that gets along with pretty much anyone, but I guess I don't stick up for myself well. The first year I worked at my district my boss would verbally degrade me in front of other staff members. I almost quit, but stuck it out. Now we get along very well. (This was three years ago). As a resource teacher, I service a student in a second grade classroom. The teacher makes rude comments to me. One example is when I asked if I could pull the student, she rudely said "Can't you see she's testing?". I was so dumbfounded I just said "I only was asking". Another example is when I came to work with her, she took over my area I normally worked in and told me to sit on the floor in a rude tone. I told her that I was not comfortable with that, and ended up sitting at the student's desk. Does anyone else deal with this? It must be my personality because this happens almost every year with a different person. I would stick up for myself, but don't want to be known as "doesn't get along well with others", and I'm afraid once the words start flowing from my mouth I may not be able to hold back! Also, I'm not tenured yet and she is. Any advice appreciated.
