So I just started a new job. We've had pre-service trainings/meetings & whatnot, and we are now setting up our classrooms. And I don't like my TA. She's been there about 7-8 years and I'm guessing is resentful that she's still not Lead qualified. In fact, she has told me that she is looking for other jobs, which may explain herself. But she has completely taken over the room. She chose the theme & started working on it before she met me. She chose the layout of the classroom. Every time I put up something on the walls, she says it can't go there & makes me take it down (or takes it down herself!). She'll even tell me where to put it and later change her mind & say it's a bad spot so I have to move it again. I finished my entire circle time area and ended up taking it all down again. I have tried to "fight" her on some things & stand my ground but I end up losing. So now I'm afraid to do anything to do the room because I just know she's going to make me change it. I know, I'm the lead teacher in the room, but 1. I can't do confrontations, and 2. I'm new so I don't want to start any problems. And if she ends up not finding a new job, I'll be stuck with her this entire school year and I'm going to be miserable. OH AND THEN, she'll say things like "it's just my suggestion. You're the teacher, it's your room, you do whatever you want" (Lies). I'm just hoping & praying she finds a new job. I don't know what to do.
