Hello everyone, This is my first post and I'm not sure what to do. I have been on a 3rd grade team for 2 years. There is 3 of us, though I am the youngest 32. The other two are old enough to be my mother. I get the feeling my team gets jealous or our teaching methods do not match. For example, we are suppose to do guided reading but one of the teachers will do AR and the other one will teach the whole class in a round robin style. They are very traditional and do not like teaching in small groups or use any hands-on inquiry teaching for math. It just seems like they look for the right worksheet. They criticize a good lesson by saying we do not have time to have the students "play" and I get the feeling they should look bored and hate learning. Their students even say they wish they were in my class. This has made the principal upset, and we are all suppose to follow the district's curriculum which is not the least traditional. Both of them seem angry at me and has attacked my teaching style and credentials. They will say I have a noisy uncontrolled class when they work in small group but they are all on task and engaged in the lesson. I have excellent test scores and do not need to have tutors brought in to pull out any I cannot reach. This also makes them mad. They are the only ones in the whole school that seem to teach to their own agenda. Is this just the way older teachers are? What would you do?
