At my para job, I am getting burned out and want to transfer. I usually have gotten the assignments that none of the other assistants want. I was placed in a terrible math class last year because one assistant hated the class so they dumped it on me. Most of the other assistants joke about how I am the one who always gets the worst assignments. I probably get them because I am not part of the clique of paras and teachers in the special education department. I am also left out of many functions that are put on by the special education department. I would like to fix this , but what is the problem? I tried being friendly and eating lunch with everyone, but I was ignored or asked to leave the cafeteria. Now, I am mostly ignored or criticized so I stay alone. At my school, the paras that are treated well belong to the clique. Any para outside of the clique is ignored or demeaned. I would like to transfer somewhere else, but I wonder if I would run into the same problem.
