I am a first year middle school math teacher. I work in a small school. One of the veteran specials teachers was sent to me earlier in the year for classroom management tips for a "tough" class. They've had this reputation for years. I've been observed with them and have had good observations but they can get out of hand (as most can with a novice teacher). I can typically reel them back in though. The specials teacher has this class between my two periodswith them once a week. This week she told them that they will not behave as they do in my class in hers and she will not let them get away with things like I do. Two of my students were very upset by the comment as well as how she disciplines them and told me about it afterwards. When this teacher is in my room, she stirs my students up which results in a consequence in my class. How do you handle other teachers negative comments about you... especially to students?
