Grr. I need to vent but I also would like some feedback. This post is long but it's an interesting story. I work with some great teachers on my grade level. However, two of them are very co-dependent. (I'll call them Teacher A and Teacher B.) They can't stand for us all not to be doing the same thing. To the point that my other co-worker (Teacher C) and I don't get to do some of the fun stuff we'd like to with our kids because Teachers A and B don't want to do them. Well yesterday we decided "to heck with it, we're gonna do this project anyway." Well, not surprising, we got the cold shoulder at lunch. Then Teacher C and I went to the library and the librarian was giving our kids their A.R. ribbons. She mentioned that earlier in the week Teachers A and B didn't have as many ribbons as us yet they were very competitive between the two of them about it. Me, being stupid, said "Uh-oh we don't need anything else to get us in trouble." The three of us briefly mentioned our project from the morning and how the other two were a little upset with us. That afternoon for some reason, unknown to me, the librarian announced on the intercom "Congratulations to Teacher C and Teacher A, I mean, D (me) for getting the most A.R. ribbons this week." Well, when she made the announcement I was in the hall and heard just the end where she said "for getting the most...." I didn't know she had a slip-up and said the wrong name. Today at about 2:30 Teacher A comes in my room and wants "to talk." She starts accusing me of making fun of her and getting everyone in the school to laugh at her. She blind-sided me with all this. I couldn't think straight. I just sat there with a puzzled look on my face. I guess she thinks I put the librarian up to it, and that saying the wrong name was on purpose. Somehow she knew that Teacher C and I had mentioned that project--although only I got yelled at over this. I don't know how she found out--the librarian couldn't have told without incriminating herself over saying they were really competitive. I really don't know what to do. I apologized and told her that if I said anything that someone took and ran with that caused people to make fun of her, I didn't want that to happen. She said she doesn't want to plan with me anymore (they do the lesson plans but wait until 5 or 6 in the evening to do them when I'm already home with my family) and that me and Teacher C are on our own. (That doesn't bother me. lol) I guess I'm afraid she'll go to the P (and other people) and paint this picture of me as a terrible person. What should I do? Does she have a leg to stand on my the P? Could I get in trouble over this?
