I would love to hear your thoughts on this. I never dreamed I would even think of it. I love teaching 2nd grade and always knew that was my grade level. However, my teaching partner seems bent on making me miserable. I've "killed her with kindness" for 3 years now and I'm just worn out. I have no idea why she doesn't like me. I have done nothing to her since I came on board. I've bent over backwards to be the team player (there are three of us). My other partner agrees that the tension is very thick and she has no clue either. The animosity is only directed at me. She will not speak unless I force her to. Her curt and clipped responses would freeze water. I can say "Good Morning" and be ignored. She will stop conversations when I walk into the room. I've even had parents ask me why she is so hateful to me. I've gone to her and asked if I've done something to offend her and she blows it off and doesn't give me anything to indicate what it might be. The cold shoulder is there and it's real and I have no idea why, but I'm so tired of being left out and treated badly and talked to with the "tone" that I'm thinking of asking to be reassigned. I'm just to the point that a fresh start actually gives me hope in my teaching. I've prayed so hard for this situation, that I would get a peace about it or that it could be fixed. I've prayed that whatever I've done be revealed to me, so I'll understand. I just don't think it's worth my misery to stay. Any of you have this experience and can share with me what to do? I'd really like to know if any of you have ever gone to your principal and asked to be reassigned. Thank you in advance for any advice you have!
