That is a really tough situation. I guess the only thing you can do (other than look for a new position) is to try and have a heartfelt talk with her. Tell her you want to make the co-teaching situation work, but be honest and tell her how you feel. Maybe you could suggest some ways that you have worked out co-teaching before and see if she is amenable to that. I would let her know that you understand she is excited and wants to try her ideas, but that you two need to plan together and be on the same page. Tell her that you are feeling like she is changing a lot of things that you have done before, and these are things you need to discuss. Then you can tell her why you think it is important to do things a certain way. I would be open to trying some of her suggestions, but let her know that she needs to be open to trying your suggestions too. If you approach the situation positively, you might be able to make it work. Just tell her how you feel. She might have no idea. She probably thinks she's being super helpful Other than that, can you have a talk with the director and tell her how you feel? Maybe she could suggest some guidelines for co-teaching and put you each in charge of certain things? I wish you luck, as I know this isn't easy.
