Sorry this will be a little long... This whole situation started about three months ago. I teach across the hall from a room of interventionists. The interventionists have been in the school for five years and are known as being difficult. This year they have a group of second graders that come down to their room and stand outside until they are ready to take them in for small group reading.They can be out there for two to ten minutes depending on how far behind they are in scheduling. The second graders are very noisy and consider this a time to play. Before Christmas I said something to the kids about the noise and made them mad. One of the interventionists told me I need to shut my door and don't worry about the noise in the hallway. Well I have taught there three years and have always had my door open and like it that way. I didn't say anything just shook it off as PMS. The next day two of my children were in the door/hallway waiting on one of the interventionist and starting arguing. I went over and talked to them and then walked back into the classroom and sat down. This same woman came in and pushed the kids out of the door and slammed the door in their face. I confronted her and said please do not touch the door and explained I like the door open. She said in front of the kids, "We get tired of hearing your mouth!" I went to the assistant principal who said the kids do not need to be in hall as it is not safe to have kids waiting in the hallway unattended and asked them to step out in the hall and wave the kids down when they were ready. The kids would be standing in the doorway of their teacher's classroom. This worked wonderfully until after winter break when the groups changed and the teachers forgot. So the noise is back but I don't say anything even though for ten minutes there is so much noise my children and I can't hear each other. So on Wednesday of last week some of the kids in the hallway came to the door of my class and started yelling inside the classroom to me like "Hi!.." I told the kids to go back to their classroom and change their behavior color. The teacher next door to me said that was not fair cause they cannot self-discipline in the hallway. I disagree if it is school wide expectation and we hold high expectations for all students. So she said please shut your door and I said why is it I am punished for doing my job? She went to the same assistant principal and complained on behalf of the kids. The assistant principal issued a note stating the previous agreement which the interventionists took as a threat and are back on the rampage against me. The asst. principal said they think I treat them like 2nd class and she thinks it would be a kind gesture to shut the door one day a week to show them I am willing to do so. I think it is absolutely stupid and immature! The teacher who told on them is their biggest buddy but they don't blame her for anything just me. The asst. principal said it was only me who needed to shut the door as the kind gesture since I seem to be the only who has hurt their feelings. Please share your thoughts and again sorry this is so long.
