This is my first year teaching 1st grade. My grade level chair, "Ms. H" is the only other teacher on my team. Her child is also in my class. We were getting along relatively well, but I noticed sometimes she would do or say mean things to me (ie: i straigtening up papers in my room and she rolls her eyes and goes, "you're getting on my nerves! you're taking too long to pick those up! i oughta throw them in the trashcan. ha ha ha!) and play it off as "kidding". Also, whenever I have a stack of papers in my room, she would take it upon herself to start thumbing through them. Sometimes she might find a worksheet she gave me to do for my class and if I hadn't done it, she would complain. Plus, when I was reorganizing my room, she purposely kept coming in and out to see what I was doing. Other times, she has come into my room and taken supplies. She'll be like, "Oh, you're not using these workbooks? Let me have like three" AS SHE IS TAKING THEM. She also blames me whenever her daughter does something wrong in my classs OR if her daughter and another child have an issue, she blames the other kid. Her daughter is EXTREMELY sensitive and cries a lot and sometimes Ms. H will come into my room and interrupt my class to see what's going on. Ms. H stopped talking to another teacher because her daughter was crying in my room and refused to leave the class (we were going on a bathroom break), and the other teacher came in and tried to support me by demanding the child come out the room and stop defying me as her teacher. Ms. H's daughter STILL wouldn't come out (or tell us why she was crying. she just cries randomly), so the other teacher called an administrator on her. Ms. H got ANGRY and won't speak to that teacher anymore Then, she started with the emails last week. Whenever she has a complaint about me, instead of walking right next door and talking to me, she sends an email. First Email(Wed): she complained we weren't on the same place in the curriculum. We met about it Thursday and she says, "Oh, you've been using worksheets to teach the same skill from outside sources. Just use the ones from the book like I do and save yourself the extra work." Thurs: Her child (who cries 24-7 in my class) complained her tooth was hurting, so i sent her to the nurse. Ms. H emails me saying in the future to send her child to her classroom whenever she has a health complaint Monday: Ms. H normally leaves a copy of the weekly homework packet on my desk. I didn't see it, so I sent a child w/a note to her room asking if I could have a copy. She EMAILS me and says we're not on the same page yet again, complains that I lost the homework packet and says maybe we need to use different packets because she was going over some skills w/her daughter and it seems like we're in different places. THEN, to add insult to injury, she comes into my room w/a copy of the HW packet during lunch and snidely says, "This wouldn't happen if our desk were neater." I am getting REALLY tired of her and I wish they would just put her child in HER room so she would have no reason to talk to me. I sent her an email explaining that it had only been a day since we discussed where we were in teh curriculum and I am now where I am supposed to be according to the curriculum calendar. I told her us not being on the same "page" was a reference to where I was in the past (Friday) not currently. Now I'm scared to check my email because I'm sure she wrote back a catty reply. She's been at the school longer than me and I know she has had issues w/other teachers in the past. However, the principal likes her, she's one of his favorites.
