So I posted before school started that I am at a new school this year, and had met the teacher of my class from last year at a PD that told me horror stories about the para and basically how she had ran the teacher out of the building. School has been in for about 3 weeks now, and while there has been the occasional eye-roll and mumbling under her breath at me, it's been workable and we've tolerated each other. That was until yesterday, on a teacher work day, when I decided to ask her how she thought everything was going and if there was any part of scheduling that needed to be adjusted. I have a specialized class of students with social delays/behavior issues, so it's been a pretty hectic and stressful year, kid-wise, so far. All of a sudden, she starts going off about how she hates how much structure I have in the classroom. She hates that I make the students do "work" (play in literacy/math centers), walk in line down the hall way, wait their turn in line to wash hands, get a drink, etc., and that I don't pick up our students while they are having tantrums to give them extra love. She said that I'm not giving them enough room to just "run wild and make messes" and that they will go to kindergarten not knowing how to do anything. I was so floored and went to my mentor to get her opinion. We ended up in a "mediation" session with the spec. ed. director and spent the rest of the day not talking to each other. Now I have to go back in on monday and work with this person who has said that she hates how I run the entire classroom. I hate the thought of working with her, but I know I have to get through the school year. Any advice?
