I am working a long term sub position as a resource teacher. I replaced a teacher who went on medical leave. I have been at this high school for a monht. I have had a really squirrelly 9th grade class and I have had to really discipline them. My 10th grade class is okay but 2 boys talked rather loudly today in the 20th grade class and my parapro yelled at them. I was teaching from the overhead. I kept them after clas, had a conference with them and was about to call their parents when my parapro exploded at me. She told me that the kids in my 10th grade class were not learning anything and that the two boys were too noisy. She also said that I was lax in my discipline. She is leaving soon and is not helping me at all. This is the third time she has criticized me. During the first few weeks I was there she remarked that the department chair had to come to my room all of the time. I wish she would just quit. The kids in my tenth grade class told me they do not like having her there because she yells at them. I am fraid to talk to her because the two department chairs are friends with her and they are constantly telling me how to run myclassroom. I am doing what they say. I feel that I do not have any authority and that I sam being treated like a rookie teacher because I am a sub.I have had several years teaching and I possess a special ed. credential. It is starting to get better but I do not like having this aide in my room. She compares me to the other teacher and tells me how great the other teacher is. I feel like I am a burden and I am so unhappy I would like to quit but I really like the students and I feel they are doing better. The people at the district office and the department chairs think I am doing okay. I am just worried that this assistant wants to get me kicked out because she wants the other teacher to come back. the parapro is leaving in a month and she either takes sick leave or hardly helps me when I am there. I am overworked and burned out. What can I do? I am miserable. TErry G.
