Next year, I am moving Key Stages and will be working with a different TA and I need some good advice please. We have worked together before, but only for a couple of hours here and there and it has not been terribly successful. She likes to 'do her own thing' and does not take direction well at all. For example, I once asked her to work with a group of YR children who were finding out about shapes - gave her some resources and my planning......when I asked her how it went, she said 'it was too easy and they found it boring, so I wrote down some sums for them to do instead!' I overheard her earlier in the year telling someone that if the Head made her work with me, she would leave....but sadly, she doesn't look like she's going anywhere and we will be together every day. Any advice please?
