The SPED coordinator, who is also my mentor is a bit of a witch. She seems to hate me, which is weird considering that she was part of the team that hired me. She critices every thing I do, no form I fill out is right, no decision I make is correct. I have NO IDEA on how to talk to parents of SPED kids (even though I am a parent to two of them, both who had IEPS most of their childhoods!). I don't know how to deal with emotional kids (except for that pesky emotionally impaired cert I have). I cannot even keep my desk clean enough for her (did I mention we share an office...ugh, kill me). On top of that she is queen bee of a huge clique, and now they are all starting to dislike me, based on her say so, since they don't know me. I have even gotten in trouble with the superintendent for having a negative attitude....which of the people I work with (all of the 3rd, and most of the 4th grade teams) do not believe, based on her say so. (Seeing as the principal does not know me besides one conversation, I am not sure what else it could be based upon .... besides hearsay from this one person. I have another school that wants me and a company that contracts out high need teachers that would also like to have me. I have even gone so far to update my resume. Now I don't know what to do.....do I float it or not? I love the kiddos I work with and they love me, so do the teachers I work with....I am just not sure I can deal with this one person.
