Hi everyone, Thank you for letting me vent. I have been harassed by this other para for the whole year. She has yelled at me at meetings. She has belittled me in front of other assistants. She has told me several times that I should be assisting the most difficult kids in the school because I am new. She even made a remark to me about Jews hating Obama because I am Jewish. This happened during the November Election. I also applied for a special education teaching job at this school and did not get hired for it. Her daughter got hired for this job as a long term sub. I have a special education credential and a science credential. I am looking for other jobs. Yesterday she came to the lunch table while I was talking to two other assistants. We were all discussing CSETS and teaching jobs. She then mouthed off to me that I would never be hired in my district as a permanent teacher. She said that the only job I could get was a day to day sub. I told her I wanted a permanent position and then I told her that I did not like subbing. She then repeated that subbing was the only thing I could get and that I should be thankful that she was trying to help me. I told her that I did not want to sub and not to talk about it. She then yelled at me. She said YOU ONLY SUBBED IN PRIVATE SCHOOLS! YOU SHOULD LEAVE THIS SCHOOL AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! I then told her that subbing was beneath what I was qualified for. Then I told her I know you have to know someone to get a job at this school. After that she really exploded and said that I would never get a long term substitute job like her daughter and that I was a nobody!. She also said she was going to the Vice Principal in charge of special education and tell her that I insulted her and the school and that I was uncooperative. I stayed home from work today because I am afraid I will be fired. I wrote a long memo to the Principal and Vice Principal documenting this aide's harassment and bullying! I feel this assistant thinks I am trying to take her daughter's teaching job!. That is why she has been harassing me all year. I do not go to the union rep or anyone in the department because this assistant has been working at this school for 7 years and is a favorite of the teachers and of everyone else. I am just an ordinary assistant even though I have a good reputation for being intelligent and efficient. Even the union rep is her best friend!. I have a good reputation but now this assistant has ruined my career. I expect to be fired tomorrow. Should I go to an administrator with the memo?:help: I must be a loser. This is the second person at this school that is pushing me around. Should I resign?
