the TA's hate me
Hi There- So I just found out from my principal on Friday that all the TA's who go in the classroom to help us out hate to work with me. My principal said this has been going on for years but decided to finally tell me- of course with no suggestions of how to fix this and just dropped the news on me. Of course I take this very seriously and feel awful about myself. I am an intense teacher who takes my job way too seriously because I feel like I have so much to teach them and get them where they need to be. I am planning on having a courageous conversation with my present TA but it is so upsetting that I am just finding out about this. It just crushes me.

Your principal sounds like an idiot!

I canít imagine TAís telling their principal anything of the sort - they would come off looking like they arenít team players.

If you are concerned that there might be truth to the comment, I would have a talk with the TA that you work the most.

Planning on it, but it has killed me emotionally this weekend!

They might "hate you," because you actually put them to work. Don't let it get to you at all. But I do suggest when you feel a bit better, talk to them. You are not there for the TAs, it's your classroom you are there for the kids <3
