I teach at a small, private school. Despite the fact that I am only beginning my third year of teaching, I am considered a veteran of the group because of the turnover rate. The teachers this year are all new and most of them do not have elementary teaching experience. I tried to be helpful by sharing my ideas, but I quickly discovered that instead of just using my ideas to create some of their own, the other teachers have instead just taken the exact ideas. I've walked into rooms that look almost exactly like mine. But, the straw that broke the camel's back was hearing that another teacher will be using the exact same Class Dojo reward system that I am using (students can advance in martial arts belts after earning a set number of points). I understand taking ideas from teachers not in the same school (I've gotten ideas from Pinterest), but now my ideas are not mine at my own school. How would you go about dealing with this? I don't think that the other teachers understand what they are doing; they are just trying to survive. But, it's really agitating for me.
