Being Pushed Aside

I have been a specialist teacher for a number of years. We recently got a new person in my department, who is very good, but she is from another state where there were lots of state takeovers of failing schools, and although we are not a failing school, I think our admin is getting pressure to raise test scores. I'm spending a fair amount of my time getting her acclimated -- we are supposed to work as a team. This may sound petty, but I'm offended and ego bruised. Our principal loves her, and I'm most definitely yesterday's news. There is an upcoming conference, and she gets to go. There are special trainings and work sessions with the "coaches" in our building, and she's participating (not that I really want to do it, but I don't even get to put in my 2 cents). I have to give her and my principal lots of info. on kids and data, but she gets all the glory. Waa...waa.

I'm close to retirement, but I didn't want to end my career this way feeling like my expertise is totally overlooked. Just venting. I think I'm regarded as very hard working, dedicated to the students and teachers, somewhat vocal but kind. It just feels wrong.

Yup! it is wrong! Well, we are not perfect. Sometimes we have an awful feeling. We are humans! Forgive yourself and move on! The P realizes that you will be gone and she will be staying. He/she doesn't give a two rats @ss- She is staying!. That is the way life is: it will be wise of you to move on.

On a very strong note, I am not criticizing you for your feelings-very normal, just let it go!
