Need to vent 😅

Hi everyone,

I just need to vent about something that occurred at work today.

It was towards the end of the day and I decided to check up on one of the students who was in a different classroom.

The other teacher responded to me by yelling at me telling me to get out of the classroom youíre not needed. It came off very aggressive and I felt like it could of been said in a more respectful manner.

It was so loud that everyone else in the school heard and I felt rather humiliated and anxious about returning to work.

if something like that happened in my district, then the gossip would be how out of control, rude the other teacher was. It would not be about the victim.(you)

I hope the other person apologizes I can't condone yelling like that, when all you were doing was checking in. I would find it hard to trust that person. I once had a situation with another colleague who acted over-the-top emotionally towards me at a workshop we were having. I took the high road and smoothed things over with her, knowing i'd have to work with her the following year at the grade level. Things never were the same between us, and i was glad when I retired and would not have to deal with the drama any more.

I side with the yeller. Sometimes, what you did can just make the situation worse for various reasons. Maybe she was frustrated with the situation and you coming in made it worse.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. That's an awful way to treat someone! I hope you'll be able to confront her about this and she'd better apologize! If not, I'd talk to the P. That's just horrible. She should be embarrassed.

The other teacher should be embarrassed. I would not approach that teacher. He/she should come to you and apologize (although they may not). I would just say "You can talk to me next time, you don't need to yell."

It baffles me how some teachers act. They would slay a student who did something like this.

There's no excuse

for yelling at a fellow teacher (even if she thought you were "making matters worse," which I would highly doubt.) A simple "we're fine here" said in a calm voice would do the same thing without making a scene in front of children and other staff.

I understand that however I felt her response didnít need to be so aggressive she could of said it in a normal tone.

Since it was the end of the day and parents were coming to pick up the children.

She was out of line

Maybe you blew it, maybe she was having a hard day, maybe you shouldn't have interfered, but whatever you "should" have done differently, she had absolutely no right to behave like that in front of students. My general rule of thumb is to show only respect and support to fellow educators in front of the students. If your behavior was out of line, or even if you just annoyed her, she should have let it go in that moment and then pulled you aside privately later. You have no reason to feel embarrassed or anxious. This one isn't on you.

I have a <Look at me. Look at me!> colleague who is known to interrupt classes just to deliver copies, ask about an upcoming assignment, or escort a student back to class saying "Oh, sorry. Johnny was in the hallway and I needed to talk with him for a moment. That's why he's a little late." This colleague just wants to be seen, extensively greet, and have the students think that person is cool. As (incredibly) annoying as that colleague is, I have never and would never yell at that person for entering my classroom uninvited.

@always summer

You really support yelling at another teacher in front of students?

You don't think it's unprofessional and sets a poor example while undermining staff?

Lol, yikes...

By her yelling at you, you can expect no cooperation from your student from no on. She made you look bad in front of the student and now the student knows that the y can treat you the same way.

Absolutely unacceptable on that teacher's part. I would explain to her that how she responds will be reflective in how the student responds from now on.
They model our behavior.

What? I donít think thereís ever a reason to yell at a colleague in front of students.
