As some might know...I am working as a LTS. I am really starting to like my sister teacher (the one of the same grade next door). It was a slow go-but I like her. But today, I found out that she has passed off two of my really good ideas as hers. Both ideas got great accolades from the principal. The first was for the logistics of a problem they were having with the upcoming (now past) Halloween celebration and "too many unwanted parents hanging around". She and I wrote back and forth over the weekend. I gave my answer...and hours later she writes..I was thinking the same thing and I told the principal and she loved the idea. Yeah, she said it was hers....and how it was (with the twist in there...I KNOW it was mine). Today i find a note from the principal telling her how brilliant it was, and how beautifully it worked out. Hmmmm. Next - today we were sitting down - the two of us - and having a grade level meeting where we were to write up proposals for grade level goals and professional development for the school that would help us reach them as well as be able to have other teachers utilize the same professional development to reach goals at THEIR grade levels. She was totally blocked from getting ideas. I had the idea...helped her to see the vision, and then I worded the proposal as she wrote it down. Later the principal comes into the room and praises her to the hilt about the fact that these were not only what she (the principal) was looking for-but how the DISTRICT office is going to be SOOOO impressed. And could SHE (the sister teacher) go along with the principal to present it to not only be a schoolwide, professional development, institute day event...but one for the entire (HUGE) district. **** This teacher is up for tenure this year...and I KNOW she wants to boost herself up to a point that there is no doubt she would get it. And I? I'm a LTS just hoping for a reference nod. But..... I'm getting a bit irritated!
