She's Made Her Mind Up About Me

Several years ago, I covered some classes in another teacher's classroom space at another school.
(She was not there on the days that I was.)
She did not like it one bit. She does not like nor respect me one bit.
Basically, she badmouths me, criticizes my teaching, and even said that items were going missing when I was there.
(She has never seen me teach nor has she seen my lesson plans/ projects.)
Soon the principal was in my face threatening to have me fired.
(By the way, the students loved me.)

In September, I will be going back there to cover classes.
The principal is long gone.
I know this colleague is going to be furious about it.

I do not want to go through that sabotage again.
How can I protect myself from hurtful words and accusations?
Just want to stay under the radar, teach the kids, and get out of there without incident or injury.
Should I take photos of the classroom each day to show how I left it?

For the record, she is an All-Around wonderful teacher.
I show respect to her.

But, she just took a real disliking to me.
And nothing I've done, not even my best work or my successful years teaching, changes her mind about me.

Badmouthing

Have you spoken to her about her badmouthing? If not, that might be one step you could take.

I would warn her you are planning to get a lawyer to file a restraining order so she may no longer badmouth you. If it continues, you will be filing a liable suit against said teacher.

Not to be that person. Maybe you did something. We live in a PC and litigious world. Everything is seen as a slight. Maybe you touched something and it upset her. I had a coworker who was a real nut. During a prep, I went into her room to ask her something. Her coteacher was teaching. As the students started their work, she left to use the bathroom or something. The other teacher said to me "Look, she moved my lessonplans! She is always messing with me". The lesson plans must have touched on accident.
