I co-teach my 3's class. My co-teacher has been at the school longer than I have, and started the year off with these kids, while I came in in September. She runs a VERY tight ship, and I have tried as much as I can to be consistent with my expectations and stuff. On te weeks I run circle, they don't seem to listen nearly as well as they do with her... lots of misbehaving, talking, etc. She doesn't seem to have this problem. It's been particularly bad this week. Today she comes up to me during nap and says, "you have GOT to figure out something, this can't continue." She will pull kids off the carpet or whatever, as will I, but other than that she doesn't HELP, she just basically glares at me. She doesn't says much of ANYTHING to me unless it's because she doesn't like something I'm doing (even if it's working, it's not HER way). She told me at the beginning she would prefer to plan together, but goes ahead and does the plans without telling me... says "i'd love your ideas" and then doesn't use them. She's a HUGE organizer. I'm not, but I'm trying as hard as I can to keep things neat and organized using the system she set up. I'm fed up with this. I'm going to look around for some management strategies, but I can always use more. I think it's because some of the things she doesn't tolerate at ALL don't bug me and I think are more developmental, so I don't stop them immediately. But I'm not sure which bugs me more... the kid's behavior or having to co-exist in a room where I feel I'm not really wanted. Thanks for letting me vent. Suggestions are always appreciated.
