I am an nqt (qualified in 2009) and recently secured a teaching post. My nqt year will start in september. The school asked me to do supply work for them starting June. Today was my first day and I found the teaching assistant to be very rude and disruptive. The class is very disruptive so it doesn't help when I have someone whose not supportive. I want to know what you think. I was doing a lesson and the TA would just butt in and ask the children questions whilst I was doing my intro. When someone came into ask me how I was getting on the TA all of a sudden just said this table is really messy. She was talking about the table I was on during an activity (no table is tidy during a lesson). To make it worse she would correct me (when there was nothing wrong) each time I stopped the children or made a decision. How do I deal with such a person? I kept my cool today but cannot put up with such rudeness for the next seven weeks. I was thinking about talking to he. Any advice???
