I'm concerned because we had a huge turnover this year and our entire team (including our team leader) are gone leaving just me and Sally in our grade level. Sally is nice, but she spent all last year on the bad side of the administration because she has poor class management skills, misses deadlines, and she freaks out/panics easily. I'm not sure if that means I become team leader or not, but I'm not as much concerned about that as I am that Sally's friend from another grade level is moving to our team. The two of them are members of the "party girl" clique of about six other teachers at my school. They're the type to go out on booze cruises and bars during after school, then arrive late to work and do a half- a** job. Sally's a follower and had trouble last year doing her job when we had a team of all responsible people. Now I'm concerned what'll happen when she has her equally irresponsible buddy with her. I'm also concerned because Sally's buddy has a bit of bad attitude and I've overheard her saying things like, "I know <reading specialist> asked for my data sheet before I leave Friday, but I have a LIFE. outside of school. I have friends. So I'll get it to her Monday." Toward the end of the year, I noticed that Sally started saying things like that and having a bit of attitude too. I've seen them turn in stuff late/not at all and try to put it on other people (ie: My documents are late because no one told me). Has anyone been in a situation like this? I'd appreciate any and all advice. At this point I figure I have to document EVERYTHING and put EVERYTHING I say to them in email so I have evidence incase they lie about me.
